2.     CONSENT AGENDA.

2.1.   REDEVELOPMENT AGENCY MINUTE ORDER NO. RDA 1-00 — AUTHORIZATION FOR THE EXECUTIVE
       DIRECTOR TO ENTER INTO AN AGREEMENT WITH TRANSFER FLOW, INC. FOR FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE
       FOR THEIR PROPOSED EXPANSION AT THE CHICO MUNICIPAL AIRPORT

       Transfer Flow Inc. is planning to expand their fuel tank manufacturing business at their current location on
       Fortress Street, north of Ryan Avenue. To accommodate this expansion, Transfer Flow is leasing approximately
       3.09 acres of city-owned property adjacent to their existing property, which will be used for the construction of
       another warehouse and additional parking. Transfer Flow is leasing the property since it is located west of the
       FAA deed of release line and cannot be sold. Since the property is owned by the City, Transfer Flow is requesting
       financial assistance for the extension of water, sewer and storm drain lines from Fortress Street to the newly leased
       property line. At its 12/09/99 meeting, the Economic Development Committee recommended that the
       Redevelopment Agency pay up to $50,000 of the costs to install these off-site utility line improvements using
       competitively bid prevailing wage labor. This Minute Order will authorize the Executive Director to enter into an

2.     CONSENT AGENDA.

2.1.   RESOLUTION NO. 67 99-00 -- RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CHICO AMENDING
       SECTION 2R.04.180, ENTITLED "CONFLICT OF INTEREST CODE", OF CHAPTER 2R.04, ENTITLED
       "ADMINISTRATION", OF TITLE 2R OF THE CHICO MUNICIPAL CODE

       By memorandum dated 12/10/99, the Personnel Director reports that this is a “housekeeping” resolution which
       amends that portion of the City of Chico’s Conflict of Interest Code which lists the required disclosure categories
       of designated city officials pursuant to the requirements of the Political Reform Act. This year’s revisions add
       the positions of Principal Planner and Airport Manager. The only other change was the transfer of the Projects
       Manager position from the Fire Department to the Community Development Department. The Personnel Director
       recommends adoption of this resolution.

2.2.   RESOLUTION NO. 68 99-00 -- RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CHICO AMENDING
       SECTION 2R.04.070, ENTITLED "CITY MANAGER AUTHORIZED TO MAKE LOCAL SAFETY MEMBER
       DISABILITY DETERMINATIONS.", OF TITLE 2R OF THE CHICO MUNICIPAL CODE

       RESOLUTION NO. 69 99-00 -- RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CHICO AMENDING
       SECTION 2R.04.140, ENTITLED "CITY MANAGER AUTHORIZED TO SUBMIT DISABILITY RETIREMENT
       APPLICATIONS ON BEHALF OF EMPLOYEE", OF TITLE 2R OF THE CHICO MUNICIPAL CODE

       By memorandum dated 12/13/99, the City Attorney and Personnel Director recommend adoption of two
       resolutions which update Government Code references in existing Chico Municipal Code sections related to
       applications for disability retirement under the Public Employees Retirement System (PERS). This is a
       “housekeeping” change that adds no additional authority and has no fiscal impact. The City Attorney and
       Personnel Director recommend adoption of the resolutions.

2.3.   RESOLUTION NO. 70 99-00 -- RESOLUTION OF INTENTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CHICO
       TO ABANDON AND VACATE PUBLIC UTILITY EASEMENT PURSUANT TO THE PUBLIC STREETS,
       HIGHWAYS, AND SERVICE EASEMENTS VACATION LAW (LOT 4, THE FAIRWAYS AT CANYON OAKS
       SUBDIVISION, ASSESSOR'S PARCEL NO. 011-800-004)

       By memorandum dated 12/9/99, the Director of Public Works reports that the property owner, Canyon Oaks, LLC,
       a limited liability company, has petitioned the City to abandon the 3-foot-wide public utility easement on Lot 4
       of the Fairways at Canyon Oaks Subdivision, to allow for future development of the property. The Director of
       Public Works recommends adoption of the resolution which will schedule a public hearing for 2/1/00.

2.4.   RESOLUTION NO. 71 99-00 -- RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CHICO LEVYING
       ASSESSMENT INSTALLMENTS IN LIEU OF THE PAYMENT OF SEWER SYSTEM CONNECTION FEES

       RESOLUTION NO. 75 99-00 -- RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CHICO LEVYING
       ASSESSMENT INSTALLMENTS IN LIEU OF THE PAYMENT OF SEWER SYSTEM CONNECTION FEES
       INCIDENT TO THE CONNECTION OF PREMISES TO THE CITY SEWER SYSTEM – 574 E. 7TH AVENUE / A.P.
       NO. 003-383-015

       By memoranda dated 12/3/99, the Director of Public Works reports that resolutions establishing the levying of
       assessment installments in lieu of payment of sewer system connection fees for these properties were previously
       approved by Council. However, due to an administrative error, the first assessments were levied one year late
       in November 1996 rather than in November 1995. The property owners (Perfecto & Malu Delmendo, Richard &
       Marie Atmore, Stephen E. Delia, Christian Mitchell, and Lola Wong, respectively), were contacted and given the
       option of paying the missed assessment in full or extending the schedule of assessment payments to end one year
       later. Two of the property owners responded and chose to extend the schedule of assessments to end one year
       later. The property owners who did not respond were notified by letter that the schedule of assessments would
       be extended to end one year later. Owners of all five of the properties will be notified of the date and time of this
       Council meeting. Therefore, in order to modify the reimbursement schedules, the former resolutions will be
       rescinded and replaced by these resolutions. These assessments are in lieu of payment of the sewer system
       connection fees, which would ordinarily be due and payable at the time of connecting the premises to the City’s
       sewer system. The Director of Public Works recommends adoption of the resolutions.

2.5.   MINUTE ORDER NO. 1-00 -- AUTHORIZATION FOR CITY MANAGER TO EXECUTE A DEED GRANTING AN
       EASEMENT FOR PUBLIC VEHICULAR AND PEDESTRIAN ACCESS ON SKYWAY, ASSESSOR’S PARCEL NO.
       002-210-026

       Subdivisions typically require relinquishment of abutter’s rights to the City to restrict direct access to major
       collector or arterial streets. However, once design of a development project is complete and the access needs are
       identified, the property owner may request access rights from the City. In order to allow vehicular and pedestrian
       access and circulation for future development of Assessor’s Parcel No. 002-210-026, the owners, Inderjit and
       Rakesh Joshi, have requested a public access easement across certain portions of the parcel along the Skyway
       which currently have restrictions. The Assistant Director of Public Works recommends approval of the minute
       order.

2.6.   MINUTE ORDER NO. 2-00 -- APPROVAL OF EMPLOYMENT AGREEMENT AMENDMENT REGARDING
       SALARY (CITY OF CHICO/DAVID R. FRANK)

       Based on the City Council’s evaluation of the City Attorney’s performance, this Minute Order amends the
       employment agreement with the City Attorney to set the salary for the position of City Attorney at 6.8% above
       the top of the annual salary range for the Police Chief/Fire Chief.

       (On this evening’s addendum, Councilmembers Kirk and Keene indicated that this Minute Order should be
       amended to increase the City Attorney’s salary by 6.8% (rather than by 6.8% above the top of the salary range
       for Police/Fire Chief), in accordance with action taken by Council in closed session.)

2.7.   MINUTE ORDER NO. 3-00 -- AUTHORIZATION FOR THE CITY MANAGER TO ENTER INTO AN AGREEMENT
       WITH NORTHERN CALIFORNIAEMERGENCY MEDICAL SERVICES, INC., AND ENLOE MEDICAL CENTER


                                                             3
                                                  January 4, 2000


       FOR PROVISION OF ADVANCED LIFE SUPPORT (ALS) NON-TRANSPORTING PARAMEDIC SERVICES BY
       THE FIRE DEPARTMENT

       This minute order will authorize the City Manager to enter into an agreement with Northern California Emergency
       Medical Services, Inc., and Enloe Medical Center which would allow City personnel in the Fire Department who
       are licensed paramedics to provide limited paramedic support services. The authorization for those paramedic
       services, which would not conflict with private provider services, would be limited to 1) support of the Rescue,
       HAZMAT, DART and SAFE teams, and 2) employee training for EMT and Automatic Heart Defibrillator
       certifications, and would be further contingent on no additional costs being incurred by the City for provision
       of these services. The Fire Chief recommends approval of the minute order.

2.8.   APPROVAL OF SUPPLEMENTAL APPROPRIATION TO FUND SECURITY FIRM SERVICES AT THE CHICO
       DEPOT (AMTRAK)

       Based on a preliminary cost estimate provided by a security firm for locking/unlocking security service at the
       Chico Depot (Amtrak), $9,000 was included in this year's budget from the Transit Operations Fund (859) for this
       service. Due to minimum service hours (two hours for each lock or unlock service) required by the security firm,
       the actual annual cost is estimated to be $22,000, plus contingencies and holiday rates. This Supplemental
       Appropriation would allocate funds in the amount of $15,000 from the Transit Operations Fund (859). At its
       meeting of 01/03/00, the Finance Committee will be requested to recommend approval of this supplemental
       appropriation. In the event the Committee does not recommend approval, this item will be pulled from the consent
       agenda for discussion. The Council is being provided with a copy of the Transit Operations Fund Summary which
       reflects the estimated 06/30/00 fund balance. The Community Development Director recommends approval of the
       supplemental appropriation.

2.9.   APPROVAL OF MINUTES - NOVEMBER 30 & DECEMBER 7, 1999

       The Council has been provided with copies of minutes for its meetings held on 11/30/99 and 12/7/99.

       Councilmember Keene moved adoption of each resolution and approval of all other items on the Consent Agenda,
       including the correction to item 2.6. The motion was seconded and carried by the following vote: AYES:
       Councilmembers Herbert, Jarvis, Keene, Kirk, Lange and Bertagna. NOES: None. ABSENT: Councilmember
       Guzzetti.

3.     NOTICED PUBLIC HEARINGS.

3.1.   HEARING ON ABANDONMENT AND VACATION OF A PORTION OF A STREET — EAST NINTH AVENUE
       AT LINDO AVENUE

       By memorandum dated 12/8/99, the Director of Public Works reported that the owners of 684 East 9th Avenue,
       Stephen A. White, Marvin E. Turner, Lynne L. Turner, and Virginia B. Barnett Trust, had petitioned the City to
       abandon a portion of East 9th Avenue at Lindo Avenue for expansion of the adjacent use. There were existing
       City storm drain facilities and other public utilities within this portion of East 9th Avenue, so a public utility
       easement would need to be retained over the entirety of the area proposed for abandonment, if the Council
       approved the request. At the 12/7/99 meeting, the City Council adopted a resolution of intention to abandon this
       portion of East 9th Avenue and set a public

       hearing for 1/4/00. Although staff does not support this abandonment due to its proximity to Lindo Channel;
       nevertheless, staff recommends the Council conduct the public hearing to consider the property owner's request
       for abandonment.

       By letter dated 12/15/99, the petitioner, Stephen A. White, requested that the hearing on this matter be continued
       to 2/15/00.

       No one spoke from the audience, and Councilmember Kirk moved that the hearing be continued to the Council’s
       2/15/00 meeting. The motion was seconded and carried with Councilmember Guzzetti being absent.

3.2.   HEARING ON ABANDONMENT AND VACATION OF PUBLIC UTILITY EASEMENT — 250 COHASSET ROAD

       By memorandum dated 12/8/99, the Director of Public Works reported that the owner of 250 Cohasset Road, H.R.
       Van Triest, B.V., a Netherlands corporation, had petitioned the City to abandon the 15-foot-wide public utility
       easement on that property since the easement was no longer necessary for present or prospective public utility
       purposes. At the 12/7/99 meeting, the City Council adopted a resolution of intention to abandon this easement
       and set a public hearing for 1/4/00. The Director of Public Works recommended adoption of the resolution.

       No one spoke from the audience, and the Mayor declared the hearing closed.

       RESOLUTION NO. 76 99-00 -- RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CHICO ORDERING
       ABANDONMENT AND VACATION OF A PUBLIC UTILITY EASEMENT PURSUANT TO THE PUBLIC
       STREETS, HIGHWAYS, AND SERVICE EASEMENTS VACATION LAW (250 COHASSET ROAD). After reading
       the title, Councilmember Kirk moved adoption of the resolution. The motion was seconded and carried by the
       following vote: AYES: Councilmembers Herbert, Jarvis, Keene, Kirk, Lange and Bertagna. NOES: None. ABSENT:
       Councilmember Guzzetti.

3.3.   HEARING ON ABANDONMENT AND VACATION OF SEWER EASEMENT — GREENFIELD SUBDIVISION

       By memorandum dated 11/23/99, the Director of Public Works reported that the owners of the Greenfield
       Subdivision, Webb Homes and 13 other property owners, had petitioned the City to abandon the sewer easement
       located in the Greenfield Subdivision, between Sandy Cove Drive and Silver Lake Drive, since the easement had
       been replaced by an access road along the County SUDAD (Shasta Union Drainage Assessment District) right-of-
       way that serves the same purpose. At the 12/7/99 meeting, the City Council adopted a resolution of intention to
       abandon this easement and set a public hearing for 1/4/00. The Director of Public Works recommended adoption
       of the resolution.

       No one spoke from the audience, and the Mayor declared the hearing closed.

       RESOLUTION NO. 77 99-00 -- RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CHICO ORDERING
       ABANDONMENT AND VACATION OF A SEWER EASEMENT PURSUANT TO THE PUBLIC STREETS,
       HIGHWAYS, AND SERVICE EASEMENTS VACATION LAW (GREENFIELD SUBDIVISION). After reading the
       title, Councilmember Keene moved adoption of the resolution. The motion was seconded and carried by the
       following vote: AYES: Councilmembers Herbert, Jarvis, Keene, Kirk, Lange and Bertagna. NOES: None. ABSENT:
       Councilmember Guzzetti.

4.     REGULAR AGENDA.

4.1.   ITEMS REMOVED FROM THE CONSENT AGENDA. None.

4.2.   CONSIDERATION OF INTERIM URGENCY ORDINANCE ESTABLISHING A MORATORIUM ON WIRELESS
       COMMUNICATION FACILITIES.

       Mayor Bertagna removed himself from participating in consideration of this item, and Vice Mayor Herbert
       presided.

       By memorandum dated 12/20/99, the Planning Director reported that at Council’s direction, an interim ordinance
       establishing a temporary moratorium on permits allowing new wireless communications facilities in Chico had been
       prepared. The ordinance established a temporary moratorium on approval of any wireless communication facilities
       until permanent regulations for such facilities could be prepared and adopted. The proposed
        ordinance was an urgency ordinance which would take effect immediately upon its adoption and remain in effect
       for 45 days from its adoption, unless it was sooner repealed by the Council or the date of its expiration was
       extended by future action of the Council.

       City Attorney Frank reported that the Council could consider adoption of the ordinance pursuant to the City
       Charter which required that the ordinance be read in its entirety and that it receive four affirmative votes in order

                                                             5
                                                  January 4, 2000


       to be adopted, or it could consider adoption under State law which required reading of the title and a 4/5 vote of
       the Council, or 6 affirmative votes, in order to be adopted.

       Doug Perske, Silver Oak Drive, Maggie Van Dame, 2695 Silver Oak Drive, and Linnea Hanson, 2837 Mariposa
       Avenue, all recommended adoption of the ordinance to allow time to adopt permanent regulations. Bob Linscheid,
       CEPCO, stated the ordinance would discourage businesses from locating in the community, that there was a use
       permit process currently in place for wireless communication facilities, and it would seem an urgency ordinance
       should only be considered when there was a threat to the public health or safety. Russell Jones, 1225 Ivy Street,
       stated he depended on the use of a cellular phone in his business and was not in favor of the ordinance. Jim
       Goodwin, Chamber of Commerce, recommended that the Council not adopt the ordinance and instead use
       provisions that were currently in place.

       In response to Council questions, the City Manager and Planning Director estimated that it would take
       approximately 6 months to adopt a permanent ordinance, reviewed the current Code standards for approving use
       permits, and also read the findings that had to be made for approving use permits.

       Councilmember Jarvis moved that the ordinance be continued to the Council’s 2/1/00 meeting. The City Manager
       noted that the AT&T Wireless use permit hearing was scheduled for that meeting so the Council might want to
       consider the ordinance at its 1/18/00 meeting. Councilmember Jarvis amended her motion to consider the
       ordinance at the Council’s 1/18/00 meeting without scheduling a public hearing. Councilmember Kirk reported
       that she wanted to consider the AT&T Wireless use permit but also wanted to have the interim urgency ordinance
       in place. Councilmember Keene noted that any use
       permit applications would come to the Council regardless. The motion made by Councilmember Jarvis was then
       seconded by Councilmember Kirk and carried with Councilmembers Jarvis, Kirk and Lange voting aye,
       Councilmembers Herbert and Keene voting no, Councilmember Bertagna abstaining, and Councilmember Guzzetti
       being absent.

       Mayor Bertagna presided over the remainder of the meeting.

4.3.   INITIAL CONSIDERATION OF APPEAL BY TIMOTHY VANDERHEIDEN OF THE PLANNING COMMISSION
       APPROVAL OF USE PERMIT NO. 99-40 TO ALLOW A SECOND DWELLING UNIT AT 1646 BROADWAY
       STREET
       The Council was in receipt of a memorandum dated 12/21/99 from Planning Division Staff reporting that at its
       12/2/99 meeting, the Planning Commission approved, with conditions, Use Permit No. 99-40 (Matt Maderos) to
       allow an 843 square foot second dwelling unit on a 6,300 square foot parcel identified as 1646 Broadway Street,
       Assessor’s Parcel No. 005-197-016, in an R1 Low Density Residential zoning district, designated on the General
       Plan as Low Density Residential. Planning Division Staff recommended that the City Council take no action,
       thereby denying the appeal and upholding the Planning Commission’s approval of Use Permit No. 99-40.
       Councilmember Kirk moved that the Council schedule this appeal for public hearing at the Council’s 2/1/00
       meeting. The motion was seconded and carried with Councilmember Guzzetti being absent.

4.4.   CONSIDERATION OF REPORT AND RECOMMENDATIONS FROM THE INTERNAL AFFAIRS COMMITTEE
       ON ITS MEETING HELD ON DECEMBER 14, 1999
       Councilmember Jarvis reviewed a memorandum dated 12/17/99 from the Internal Affairs Committee that provided
       a report on its meeting held on 12/14/99, at which time the matters listed below were considered. All Committee
       members were present: Councilmembers Bertagna, Kirk, and Jarvis, Chair.



       Consent Agenda
       A.    (No Council action required)
             APPROVAL OF PARKING PROHIBITION AND ESTABLISHMENT OF A BUS ZONE ALONG THE
             DIABLO COURT CUL-DE-SAC BULB. The Committee unanimously adopted the Resolution of the Internal
             Affairs Committee of the City Council of the City of Chico Adopting Traffic Regulation Amendment No.
             647, prohibiting parking and establishing a bus zone along the Diablo Court Cul-de-sac bulb.

Regular Agenda
B.   (Council action required)
     CONSIDERATION OF REPORT ON NEIGHBORHOOD MEETING REGARDING VEHICLE SPEED
     REDUCTION ON YOSEMITE DRIVE. The Committee unanimously:
     (1)     recommended that traffic circles be installed at the three, “4-way” intersections of Yosemite Drive
             with Brookside Drive North, Brookside Drive South and Idyllwild Circle South, with staff to provide
             further clarification and details for a full Council determination on whether they should be
             permanent or temporary, as well as more information regarding the nature of the landscaping and
             maintenance of the traffic circles;
     (2)     recommended that retrofitted permanent curb return bulbing be installed at the three “T”
             intersections of Yosemite Drive with Palisades Drive, Idyllwild Circle North and Delaney Terrace;
     (3)     recommended that striping along both sides of the street to narrow the perception of the road width
             be established along Yosemite Drive from Highway 32 to the intersection of Brookside Drive South;
             and
     (4)     directed the Chief of Police to consider providing increased speed limit enforcement on Yosemite
             Drive if possible during the hours from 6:30 to 8:00 a.m., and from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m.
     Councilmember Jarvis further reported that the Council was provided with a memorandum dated 12/27/99
     from the Assistant Director of Public Works providing further information on the above matters as
     requested by the Committee. Staff recommended installation of temporary traffic circles at an estimated
     cost of $8,000 each until their effectiveness, operational functionality and neighborhood acceptance could
     be assessed, before considering permanent traffic circles at an estimated cost of $30,000 each. The
     installation of width restrictors and the approach islands would require the elimination of some on-street
     parking spaces. Staff also recommended that landscaping in the center island only be installed if the
     California Park Homeowners Association would maintain it. In addition, staff recommended that the edge
     of lane striping be extended through the Brookside North intersection and that a single “yellow skip”
     centerline stripe be installed from SHR 32 through Brookside North.

     This evening the Council received a letter dated 1/3/00 from Eunice & Gene McCutcheon, 6 Palomar Lane,
     indicating that they did not feel the recommended measures were needed.

     Don Chambers, 1246 Yosemite Drive, agreed with recommendations for striping the center and sides of
     Yosemite, questioned whether traffic circles would slow traffic, and thought speed bumps would be more
     effective and less costly. John Stall, 1269 Yosemite Drive, thought traffic circles would be acceptable if
     they could be made aesthetically pleasing, but he recommended that the existing stop sign not be removed.
     Brian Mt.Joy, 1257 Yosemite Drive, believed that striping and speed undulations would be more effective
     in slowing traffic. Ross White, 1040 Yosemite Drive, indicated the traffic circles should be tried. Kim Muir,
     1443 Broadway Street, observed that traffic circles in Seattle were not that effective in slowing traffic and
     were unsightly.

     Following discussion, Councilmember Jarvis moved approval of installing striping at the edge of Yosemite
     from SHR 32 to Brookside North and centerline “yellow skip” striping at an estimated cost of $9,000, and
     permanent curb return bulbing at Palisades, Idyllwild North and Delaney at an estimated cost of $18,000
     each. The motion was seconded and carried with Councilmember Guzzetti being absent.

     Councilmember Kirk moved approval of installing two temporary traffic circles at Brookside North and
     Brookside South. Councilmember Keene was concerned with installation and maintenance costs for traffic
     circles and questioned if speed bumps would be better. The City Manager reported that he would not
     recommend speed undulations, and recommended that the temporary traffic circles be authorized with staff
     trying to incorporate as many features as possible that would reduce the cost of permanent traffic circles
     if they were eventually installed, and that neighborhood meetings be scheduled to consider their design.
     The Public Works Director reported that not many features of the temporary traffic circles could be
     incorporated into the permanent traffic circles.

     Councilmember Kirk then amended her motion to approve the installation of two permanent traffic circles,
     including a supplemental appropriation of $30,000 for each circle from TDA funds. The City Manager


                                                   7
                                                 January 4, 2000


             stated that Council would be provided with advance photographs so it could ask to have the matter
             agendized for further consideration if necessary. The Public Works Director added that neighbors could
             be provided with the same information, that the traffic circles could be delineated on the street for two
             weeks, and then the Council and neighbors could see the concept and make a decision. Councilmember
             Jarvis seconded the motion with an amendment to also contact the California Park Homeowners
             Association about assuming maintenance costs for the traffic circles. Councilmember Kirk agreed with the
             amendment. The motion was then carried with Councilmembers Herbert, Jarvis, Kirk, Lange and Bertagna
             voting aye, Councilmember Keene voting no, and Councilmember Guzzetti being absent.

       C.    (No Council action required)
             CONSIDERATION OF REMOVAL OF STOP SIGNS ON EATON ROAD AT LEXINGTON DRIVE. The
             Committee unanimously agreed to take no action on the request for removal of the stop signs on Eaton
             Road at its intersection with Lexington Drive.

       D.    (No Council action required — continued to Committee’s 1/11/00 meeting)
             CONSIDERATION OF THE INSTALLATION OF A TRAFFIC CONTROL DEVICE AT EAST FIRST
             AVENUE AND OLEANDER AVENUE. The Committee unanimously continued this matter to its meeting
             of 01/11/00 in order to consider the installation of a traffic signal at the intersection of East First and
             Laburnum Avenues; directed staff to provide additional information regarding traffic calming options for
             East First Avenue such as traffic circles, speed tables, corner bulbing, and pedestrian refuges; and
             requested the Police Department to utilize speed trailers with readouts showing vehicle speeds to
             discourage speeding on East First Avenue in the interim.

       E.    (Council action required to accept recommendation)
             CONSIDERATION OF REQUEST FROM CARL K. COLBIE, D.D.S., FOR ADOPTION OF AN ORDINANCE
             OPPOSING THE PLACEMENT OF FLUORIDE INTO THE WATER SUPPLY. The Committee recommended
             (2-0, Jarvis voting no), that the City Council not place an advisory measure regarding fluoridation on the
             ballot since the issue was premature and funding would not be available for several years, but encouraged
             a community based ballot measure through use of the initiative process.

       F.    (No Council action required)
             REPORT REGARDINGTRAFFICREGULATIONAMENDMENTSADOPTEDBYDIRECTOR OF PUBLIC
             WORKS. This item was provided for the Committee’s information, and no action was required.

       Councilmember Keene moved to accept the report and remaining recommendations of the Committee. The motion
       was seconded and carried with Councilmember Guzzetti being absent.

4.5.   CONSIDERATION OF BUDGET REPORT FROM THE CHICO CREEK NATURE CENTER

       Mayor Bertagna requested that this item be scheduled for discussion. The Council was provided with budget
       information regarding the Chico Creek Nature Center submitted by Judy White, Executive Director. Mayor
       Bertagna reported that this evening the Council was again being provided with copies of a letter dated 10/26/99
       from the Nature Center, requesting a meeting with the Council regarding its first quarter accomplishments and
       projected funding needs for next fiscal year, and he noted that the budget information in the agenda packets was
       provided because of this letter.



       Judy White reviewed the budget and fund-raising information and provided Council with copies of the Center’s
       Environmental Education Programs brochure, and copies of the Center’s balance sheet as of 1/3/00. She indicated
       that the Center intended to request additional funding from the City in February.

4.6    ITEMS ADDED AFTER POSTING OF THE AGENDA.

       Development Impact Fees. Councilmember Kirk requested that the Council schedule the City’s Development
       Impact Fees for consideration at its 1/18/00 meeting.


                                                          8
                                                    January 4, 2000


       The Council was in receipt of letters dated 1/4/00 from the Chico Chamber of Commerce and the Chico Economic
       Planning Corporation requesting that the Council consider on its 1/18/00 agenda adoption of the proposed fee
       increases considered by Council on 12/21/99, with the exception of no increase in current fees for office/medical
       uses and industrial uses, and the exemption of existing commercial building expansions from the proposed fee
       increase for commercial uses.

5.     BUSINESS FROM THE FLOOR.

       Development Impact Fees. Tim Bousquet, P.O. Box 4627, expressed his concern that the Chamber of Commerce
       meetings that were to be scheduled regarding the fees would not provide the same level of public access as a
       Council meeting. The City Manager noted that the fees were being rescheduled for consideration at the Council’s
       1/18/00 meeting. Further, the Chamber meetings were not replacing the Council meetings, but were being held so
       the Chamber could make a recommendation to the Council.

       West 8th Avenue Improvements. William Greg Burton, 1734 Meadow Road, reported that earlier today he had
       delivered a letter to the City offices in which he explained a number of his concerns regarding proposed
       improvements to West 8th Avenue between SHR 32 and the Esplanade, and he asked that he be provided with an
       opportunity to participate in any City or County staff meetings regarding the project. The City Manager reported
       that the Director of Public Works would contact Mr. Burton regarding his concerns.

       Acquisition of Simmons Ranch Property. Caryn Jones, 5 Deborah Terrace, requested that the Council give some
       form of recognition to Suzanne Gibbs, Big Chico Creek Watershed Alliance, for her leadership in securing outside
       funding for 2,724 acres of Big Chico Creek canyon lands upstream from Bidwell Park. Honorable mention should
       also be provided to the current owners, Dan Drake and Ed and Darwin Simmons for their role. She noted that the
       area would be managed as a research natural area by California State University, Chico.

       Leaf & Yard Waste Pickup Program. Marc Nix, 3377 Nord Avenue, noted that during the leaf pickup season, the
       amount of leaves and yard waste placed at the curb forced bicyclists to ride out into the street into vehicle traffic,
       and questioned if there was any way to improve the situation. The City Manager noted that there was nowhere
       else to place the leaves and a substantial amount of leaves could fall within a short period of time during the
       autumn leaf pickup program. Councilmember Jarvis asked if staff could provide a report on the leaf pickup
       program and how it worked out this season, and Councilmember Kirk also asked for information about
       coordinating street sweeping with the leaf pickup program.

6.     REPORTS AND COMMUNICATIONS.

       The following reports and communication items were provided for the Council’s information. No action could be
       taken on any of the items unless the Council agreed to include them on a subsequent posted agenda.

6.1.   Memorandum dated 12/14/99 from the Finance Director reporting that the list of claims paid during the month of
       November 1999 is available for review in the offices of the Finance Director, the City Clerk, and the City Council.

2.1.   (This item was timed for 9:00 a.m.)
       PUBLIC MEETING ON 1999 LOT CLEANING ASSESSMENTS.

       This item may be moved to the Regular Agenda for discussion if any property owners have questions or
       comments regarding the lot cleaning assessments. By memorandum dated 12/27/99, the Fire Chief
       reports that the lot cleaning program is conducted each year under the provisions of the California
       Government Code. Pursuant to those provisions, the City is required to hold a public meeting (1/18/00)
       and public hearing (2/1/00) before approving the placement of the assessments (the costs incurred by
       the City for performing the lot cleaning plus administrative costs) on the 1999-00 tax roll. Affected
       property owners were provided with written notice of the public meeting and public hearing, and a list of
       those property owners whose lot cleaning bills remain unpaid as of 12/27/99, is attached to the Fire
       Chief’s memorandum. The Fire Chief recommends that the City Council (1) hear any protests or
       comments at the public meeting today and the public hearing on 2/1/00; (2) approve the waiving or
       sustaining of abatement costs for various parcels as recommended in his memorandum; (3) make any
       changes or corrections it deems appropriate in the assessments based on any protests or comments
       it hears at the public meeting held today, and the public hearing on 2/1/00; and (4) approve the placement
       of the assessments on the 1999-00 tax roll at the 2/1/00 meeting.

2.2.   RESOLUTION NO. 78 99-00 -- RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CHICO
       APPROVING AMENDMENT NO. 3 TO THE "MEMORANDUM OF UNDERSTANDING BETWEEN THE
       CITY OF CHICO AND INTERNATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF FIRE FIGHTERS REGARDING WAGES,
       HOURS AND OTHER TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF EMPLOYMENT”.

       By memorandum dated 01/06/00, the Personnel Director recommends approval of a resolution which
       adopts an amendment to the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the City and International
       Association of Fire Fighters. This amendment implements agreed-to increases in the City’s contribution
       to employee health insurance coverage. The additional cost is approximately $34,320 General Fund for
       1999-2000, and has been previously budgeted. The City Manager and Personnel Director recommend
       approval of this resolution.

2.3.   APPROVAL OF CITY’S STATEMENT OF INVESTMENT POLICY.

       By memorandum dated 01/10/00, the Finance Director submits a copy of the City’s Statement of
       Investment Policy as required by California Government Code §53646, and as set forth in Administrative
       Procedure and Policy No. 15-13, a copy of which has been provided to the City Council. The Finance
       Director recommends that no changes be made to the existing policy.


2.4.   ACKNOWLEDGE RECEIPT OF ANNUAL FINANCIAL REPORTS.

January 18, 2000                           Chico City Council                                           Page 1
       By memorandum dated 1/10/00, the Finance Director submits the Annual Financial Report of the City
       of Chico, Chico Redevelopment Agency Component Unit Financial Report, Chico Public Financing
       Authority Component Unit Financial Report, Single Audit Reports, Management Letter, and the
       Transportation Development Act Funds Financial Report. The Finance Director recommends that the
       reports be referred to the Finance Committee for review.

       Councilmember Keene moved adoption of the resolution and approval of all other items on the Consent

4.     REGULAR AGENDA.

4.1.   ITEMS REMOVED FROM THE CONSENT AGENDA. None.

4.2.   (This item was timed for 9:00 a.m.)
       CONSIDERATION OF FUNDING FOR THE DESIGN OF TRAFFIC CALMING/PEDESTRIAN SAFETY
       MEASURES ON EAST FIRST AVENUE BETWEEN MANGROVE AVENUE AND THE ESPLANADE

       Mayor Bertagna announced that he would remove himself from voting or discussion on this item since
       his business was located near the intersection of East 1st and Mangrove Avenues. Vice Mayor Herbert
       presided over this portion of the meeting.

       City Manager Lando reported that the City Council was being requested to appropriate funds to design
       intersection bulbing, and possibly one pedestrian refuge, at each of the intersections on East First
       Avenue between The Esplanade and Mangrove Avenue. At its meeting of 1/11/00, the Internal Affairs
       Committee directed staff to conduct a second neighborhood meeting to consider where the bulbing
       should be installed and whether or not a pedestrian refuge should be constructed at one of the four
       intersections, after which the Committee would consider and make specific recommendations on these
       matters at its meeting on 3/7/00. In the interim, the Internal Affairs Committee recommended funding
       of the design process for these traffic measures, and staff was prepared to discuss cost estimates at this
       time.

       Today the Council was provided with a memorandum dated 1/12/00 from the Director of Public Works
       recommending that $30,000 be allocated from Transportation Development Act (TDA) funds for the design
       if the Committee’s recommendation was approved by the Council.

       ---------------------------------------------------------------------
       Councilmember Guzzetti was present at 9:15 a.m.
       ---------------------------------------------------------------------

       Councilmember Jarvis suggested $35,000 in funding, $5,000 of which could be used for experts or
       consultants to attend neighborhood or community meetings regarding street design standards.
       Councilmembers Keene and Kirk indicated their preference for waiting until another meeting of the East
       1st Avenue neighborhood was held.

       City Manager Lando added that later today the Council would be asked to schedule a meeting with the
       Planning Commission regarding alternate street design standards. Councilmember Jarvis moved that
       consideration of this item be continued until after that meeting. The motion was seconded and carried
       with Mayor Bertagna abstaining.

4.3.   (This item was timed for 9:00 a.m.)
       CONSIDERATION OF INTERIM URGENCY ORDINANCE ESTABLISHING A MORATORIUM ON
       WIRELESS COMMUNICATION FACILITIES

       Mayor Bertagna removed himself from voting or discussion on this item. Vice Mayor Herbert presided
       over this portion of the meeting.

       City Attorney Frank reported that at its 1/4/00 meeting, the Council continued consideration of this

January 18, 2000                                      Chico City Council                                Page 2
       ordinance to today's meeting. By memorandum dated 1/12/00 he had submitted a modified ordinance
       which could be adopted with either of two alternative provisions. The first (Option A: New Facilities) would
       establish a temporary moratorium on the approval of any wireless communication facilities until
       permanent regulations could be prepared and adopted. The second (Option B: New Towers) would
       establish a temporary moratorium only on facilities consisting of telecommunications towers until
       permanent regulations could be prepared and adopted. The ordinance would be adopted pursuant to the
       City Charter, rather than State law and, therefore, would need to be read in its entirety and receive at
       least 4 affirmative votes for adoption.

       John Whitehead, 121 West 16th Street, requested that certain types of businesses and uses be
       exempted from the provisions of the urgency ordinance. Chris Perske, 2732 Silver Oak Drive,
       recommended adoption of the ordinance. Jim Goodwin, Chamber of Commerce, noted that the ordinance
       would allow time to develop a permanent ordinance. Arlan Nickel, AT&T Wireless, indicated that his
       company supported Option B in the ordinance, and he provided copies of his letter dated 1/17/00 that
       contained supplemental information.

       In response to Council questions, the City Manager indicated that Council could adopt a conceptual
       motion first on either of the options in the ordinance before taking the time to read it in its entirety.
       Councilmember Kirk moved approval of Option B (new towers), but the motion died for lack of a second.
       Councilmember Guzzetti then moved approval of Option A (new facilities). The motion was seconded
       but failed to carry with Councilmembers Guzzetti, Jarvis, and Lange voting aye, Councilmembers Herbert,
       Keene and Kirk voting no, and Mayor Bertagna abstaining. Councilmember Kirk remade her motion to
       approve Option B (new towers). The motion was seconded but failed to carry with Councilmembers
       Jarvis, Keene, and Kirk voting aye, Councilmembers Guzzetti, Herbert and Lange voting no, and Mayor
       Bertagna abstaining.

       Mayor Bertagna presided over the remainder of the meeting.

4.4.   BUDGET REVIEW.

       A. General Budget Review.

           City Manager Lando provided an overview of the 1999-00 annual budget. The City Council was
           provided with the following budget documents:

           1.   General and Park Funds Projected Trends
           2.   Summary of Estimated Fund Balances for all Funds
           3.   Capital Project Status Report and Discussion of Priority Street Projects

           Budget Officer Pierce provided Council with a revised copy of item #1 at today’s meeting to reflect
           a $400,000 increase in the transfer from the Gas Tax Fund to the General Fund to maintain the same
           level of transfer as adopted by the Council in the 1999-00 Budget. In response to Council, the City
           Manager reported that staff would provide the Council with a report concerning sales tax to Internet
           sales. Finance Director Martin indicated that she would provide the Council with a memorandum
           detailing the “Other Revenues” column included on the General and Park Funds Projected Trends.

       B. Consideration of Acceptance of Universal Hiring Grant Funds.

           City Manager Lando reported that at the June budget session, the City Council indicated it would
           consider acceptance of a Universal Hiring Grant through the United States Department of Justice to
           help fund the Police Department’s proposed gang unit at such time as the 1998-99 books had been
           closed. Following additional discussion at the November budget review meeting, the Council
           authorized the him to sign the grant agreement with acceptance of the funds subject to further
           discussion by the Council at today's meeting. By memorandum dated 12/23/99, the Chief of Police
           was requesting acceptance of the grant funds and establishment of a gang unit consisting of one
           sergeant and two police officers. The City Manager was recommending acceptance of the grant
           funds and establishment of a gang unit consisting of one sergeant and only one police officer.

           Council was advised that subsequent to the distribution of the agenda for today’s meeting, a
           mathematical error was discovered in the memorandum from the Chief of Police, and it was being

January 18, 2000                            Chico City Council                                            Page 3
           provided with a revised memorandum dated 1/14/00 which highlighted the corrections on pages 2 and
           3.

           Following discussion, Councilmember Jarvis moved approval of the City Manager’s recommendation.
           The motion was seconded and unanimously carried.

       D. Consideration of Finance Committee Recommendation and Approval of Supplemental Appropriation
          to Provide Funding for a Downtown Maintenance Program as Proposed by the Downtown Chico
          Business Association.

           (This item was taken out of order as listed on the agenda.)

           At its meeting of 01/03/00, the Finance Committee unanimously recommended approval of funding
           assistance from the General Fund (001) for initial start-up costs ($9,580) and first year operational
           costs (approximately $2,500 per month) to the Downtown Chico Business Association (DCBA) for
           a downtown maintenance program on a trial basis. The funding would begin following Council
           approval of the proposal through the end of the 1999-00 fiscal year and be extended through one full
           fiscal year thereafter. The annual operational costs for the program would be $30,414, as set forth
           in the revised proposal dated 11/16/99 submitted by the DCBA. The Committee recommended that
           the program be evaluated prior to allocation of funding beyond the 2000-01 fiscal year. The
           Committee also recommended that the City retain ownership of the industrial water pressure washer
           and allocate an additional $2,500 per year for equipment replacement costs.

           Today the Council was provided with a letter dated 1/17/00 from Robert Belgeri, Field Representative
           of the Service Employees International Union, in which he indicated that it was his understanding that
           this matter would be considered by the Council at its 2/1/00 meeting, that he was unable to attend
           today’s meeting, and he requested that this item be removed from the agenda so that Union
           leadership had time to consider its response to the latest proposal for this program.

           Councilmember Herbert moved that this item be continued to a subsequent meeting. The motion
           was seconded and unanimously carried.

           Councilmember Jarvis requested that staff provide a report to Council with DCBA’s current fee
           structure.

       ---------------------------------------------------------------------
       The Council recessed for 15 minutes and reconvened at 11:10 a.m. in the Council Chamber.

4.5.   (This item was timed for 11:00 a.m. The public hearing on this matter was closed on 12/21/99.)
       CONSIDERATION OF THE CITY OF CHICO 1999 UPDATE OF DEVELOPMENT IMPACT FEES
       ANALYSIS AND RECOMMENDATIONS (NEXUS STUDY)

       (This item was taken out of order as listed on the agenda.)

       City Manager Lando reported that this matter was scheduled for consideration today by the City Council
       at its meeting held on 01/04/00. A hearing for this item was previously held by Council on 12/21/99, at
       which time public comments were taken and the hearing was closed. The Council was being provided
       with copies of the “1999 Update of Development Impact Fees Analysis and Recommendations (Nexus
       Study),” a resolution amending the City’s fee schedules accordingly, copies of the memoranda dated
       12/13/99 from the City Manager and Management Analyst Halldorson, which were previously provided,
       and a memorandum dated 01/10/00 from Management Analyst Halldorson providing an analysis of the
       proposed increase in commercial fees. The City Manager recommended approval of the fees as
       proposed on 12/21/99.

       To comply with the Government Code, the Nexus Study updated the required nexus findings for
       development impact fees that provide funds for streets, bicycle facilities, street maintenance equipment,
       and administrative, police and fire buildings. A fee schedule resolution had been provided to the City
       Council in the event it wished to approve the “1999 Update of Development Impact Fees Analysis and
       Recommendations” and adopt the associated fee increases. Any fees modified by the resolution would

       become effective on the 61st day following adoption.

       Today the Council was provided with a memorandum dated 1/6/00 from the Bidwell Park & Playground
       Commission indicating that it supported the need for development impact fees to be set at rates that
       ensure that new growth and development paid their proportionate share of the cost of providing new and
       improved facilities, and it would like to see the fees set at or near the levels proposed by City staff. Also
       received was a letter dated 1/5/00 from Barbara Reed, 1144 Citrus Avenue, indicating that the Council
       would harm the citizens of Chico and the quality of life by supporting reductions or limits on developer
       fees, and a letter dated 1/7/00 from Rick Coletti, Land’s End Real Estate, asking that the Council
       consider the impacts that increased fees would have on the economic community.

       Councilmember Keene proposed leaving all fees at current levels, setting aside $300,000 which could
       amount to $1.5 million annually after 5 years and would be maintained for 15 years thereafter. Mayor
       Bertagna observed that the efforts of the City, Chamber and CEPCO resulted in commercial development
       that provided increased sales tax revenue to the City. Councilmember Jarvis suggested any changes
       in fees should be requested in July prior to the time the Council considered them each year in November.
       Councilmember Herbert was concerned with the amount of increases each year. Councilmember
       Guzzetti suggested a rebate of taxes if there was actually a surplus. He also suggested placing a
       measure on the November ballot regarding the funding of infrastructure required by new development.
       Councilmember Lange expressed her agreement with the Finance Committee’s recommendations.

       RESOLUTION NO. 79 99-00 -- RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CHICO
       AMENDING THE CITY’S FEE SCHEDULE -- AMENDMENT NO. 241 - TRANSPORTATION FACILITY
       FEES, AND BUILDING AND EQUIPMENT FEES). After reading the title, Councilmember Jarvis moved
       adoption of the resolution. The motion was seconded and carried by the following vote: AYES:
       Councilmembers Guzzetti, Jarvis, Kirk and Lange. NOES: Councilmembers Herbert, Keene and
       Bertagna. ABSENT: None.

       Councilmember Jarvis recommended that the Finance Committee begin considering development impact
       fees in July in order that it could have a final report to the Council in November, and Councilmember
       Keene recommended that the Committee also review the assumptions that were used in determining the
       fees. Mayor Bertagna moved approval of referring the development impact fees to the Finance
       Committee, that it also consider the assumptions that related to the Merged and Greater Chico Area
       Redevelopment Project Areas, and that it review the issue of interest added or charged to funds with
       positive or negative balances. The motion was seconded and unanimously carried. The Council agreed
       that any issues relating to the fees could be considered by the Committee and that all interested groups,
       organizations and the public should provide information to the Committee.

       Councilmember Jarvis recommended that the assumptions be considered every two years after each new
       Council was elected. City Manager Lando agreed with the recommendation, noting that it would save
       substantial staff time and that the assumptions would stay with the same Council for two years.

4.4.   BUDGET REVIEW (CONTINUED).

       C. Discussion Regarding the Annual Street Maintenance Program Budget.

           The City Manager reported that in the past, the City Council had allocated funds for the City’s Annual
           Street Maintenance Program as part of the annual budget process. The annual overlay and slurry
           seal program was funded with either Gas Tas (307) or Transportation Efficiency Act for the 21st
           Century (311) funds, or a combination of both. Because the annual budget was not adopted until the
           first City Council meeting in July, it often was not possible to take full advantage of the weather
           related construction season. The Director of Public Works and the City Manager were
           recommending that the Council consider annually allocating such funds in the budget year preceding
           the year in which construction would occur. This would allow the City to award construction bids
           three months earlier and take advantage of the full construction season. If the Council concurred with
           the recommendation, a supplemental appropriation to fund the 2000-01 Street Maintenance Program
           would be submitted to the Council at the April budget review meeting. In addition, through adoption
           of the 2000-01 Annual Budget in July, the Council would be requested to allocate funds for the 2001-
           02 program and to approve an amendment to the Budget Administration Policies to provide authority
           to prebudget the program on an annual basis.

January 18, 2000                            Chico City Council                                             Page 5
          Councilmember Keene moved approval of the City Manager’s and Director of Public Works’
          recommendation. The motion was seconded and unanimously carried.

     ---------------------------------------------------------------------
     The Council recessed from 11:55 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., and then reconvened in Conference Room #1.
     Councilmember Guzzetti was absent from the meeting at this time.
     ---------------------------------------------------------------------

     E. Consideration of Proposed Changes to Benefits Policy for Hourly Exempt Employees

          Personnel Director Erlandson reviewed her memorandum dated 01/10/00 in which she recommended
          changes to the City’s current Budget Administration Policy No. E.1.f. and the Personnel Rules
          relating to providing limited benefits and special consideration for permanent employment for long-
          term (2000 hours or more) hourly exempt employees. The City reached agreement with Service
          Employees International Union in September 1999 in an arbitration related to the City’s use of long-
          term hourly exempt employees. With the agreed-to changes in employment of the affected job
          classifications which resulted from the settlement agreement, it became apparent that it was
          appropriate to redefine the budget administration policies and Personnel Rules relating to these
          issues for all hourly exempt employees. The Human Resources Commission reviewed these issues
          at its 01/13/00 meeting and also recommended their approval. There was no additional cost for the
          proposed changes.

          These modifications would eliminate the generic benefit package for long-term (2000 hours or more)
          hourly exempt employees, and establish the authority to enter into specific employment agreements
          with such workers which specify the benefits to be provided, if any. These modifications would also
          eliminate the special treatment for long-term hourly exempt employees in consideration for
          appointment to permanent positions. The effective date of this amendment was set for 07/01/00 to
          allow possible transition of any remaining long-term hourly exempt employees into permanent
          positions, should they be available. There was no fiscal impact from these changes.

          If the Council concurred with the recommendations, it could adopt the resolution, and a confirming
          budget modification would be processed to amend Budget Policy No. E.1.f. and Budget Appendix
          B-2.

          RESOLUTION NO. 80 99-00 -- RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CHICO
          AMENDING SECTION 4, ENTITLED “CERTIFYING CANDIDATES FROM EMPLOYMENT LISTS,”
          OF SECTION D, ENTITLED “METHOD OF FILLING VACANCIES,” OF SECTION 2R.72.130 OF THE
          CHICO MUNICIPAL CODE, ENTITLED “SELECTION PROCEDURES”. After reading the title,
          Councilmember Keene moved adoption of the resolution. The motion was seconded and carried by
          the following vote: AYES: Councilmembers Herbert, Jarvis, Keene, Kirk, Lange and Bertagna.
          NOES: None. ABSENT: Councilmember Guzzetti.

     F. Consideration of Funding for a Television Equipment Lending Program to Assist Local Producers in
        Providing Programs for Cable Channel 11

          Administrative Analyst Wood reviewed his memorandum dated 01/10/00 in which he provided
          background information related to the City’s Television Production Equipment Lending Program, and
          to which was attached a 12/08/99 letter from the Community Access Users Group (CAUG)
          requesting that Council consider funding for the program. By separate letter dated 12/29/99, Albert
          Mitchell was requesting that Council authorize an agreement with him to provide the services noted
          in the Administrative Analyst’s memorandum for the sum of $20,000 annually.

     ---------------------------------------------------------------------
     Councilmember Guzzetti was present at 1:45 p.m.
     ---------------------------------------------------------------------

          Albert Mitchell requested that the Council give consideration to his proposal, noting that he had
          operated the initial program for the City, and thereafter subsequent contractors had not worked out
          satisfactorily. Donald Wykoff, Rainbow Heritage Project, reported that he had produced programs
          and had training sessions, however, the City’s editing equipment was not working properly.

January 18, 2000                                    Chico City Council                               Page 6
           Catherine Hamilton reported that she was a grant writer at the University and a member of the Board
           for Rainbow Heritage, and explained plans for reaching the community about the program. Jack
           Lemley, a member of the CAUG, responded to Council questions regarding the membership of the
           CAUG and the use of funds for the lending program and other activities.

           Following discussion of various options, Councilmember Jarvis moved approval of allowing Rainbow
           Heritage to continue administering the program to the end of its contract, that it provide the City with
           a three-month report, that the editing equipment be replaced, and that within the six-month period
           before the contract expired staff work with CAUG on the future of the program to change it or keep
           the status quo. The motion was seconded and unanimously carried. The City Manager reported that
           staff would provide Council with a report at the April budget meeting.

4.6.   APPOINTMENT OF SPECIAL EVENTS COORDINATING COMMITTEE

       Councilmember Kirk provided Council with copies of recommendations from the Special Events Steering
       Committee, made at a meeting held on 1/7/00 and attended by herself, Councilmember Jarvis and Lisa
       Michels. Included were recommendations relating to the purpose of the committee following appointment
       of members, having its first meeting in February in preparation for St. Patrick’s Day, appointment of a list
       of individuals who were returning members, and a list of groups at large which would name their own
       representatives.

       In response to Councilmember Kirk, Councilmember Guzzetti recommended Jack Sterling of Madison
       Bear Garden as a bar owner representative. Councilmember Jarvis reported that she had contacted and
       confirmed Lisa Fitzgerald as representative from KPAY and KHSL.

       Following discussion, Mayor Bertagna moved approval of the Steering Committee’s recommendations.
       The motion was seconded and unanimously carried.

4.7.   FUTURE MEETINGS

       A. Workshop Regarding Alternate Street Widths and Designs - At its 1/11/00 meeting, the Internal
          Affairs Committee recommended that the Council schedule a 2-1/2 to 3 hour workshop meeting, with
          the Planning Commission invited to participate, regarding alternate street widths and designs.
          Following discussion, the Council agreed to meet on 2/8/00 beginning at 7:00 p.m.

       B. Interviews for City Clerk Position - If the City Council wished to participate in the interviews for the
          position of City Clerk, they had been tentatively scheduled for 4/7/00. The Council agreed with the
          proposed date.

4.8.   ITEMS ADDED AFTER POSTING OF THE AGENDA

       A. Yosemite Drive Traffic Controls. At the request of Councilmember Kirk, Mayor Bertagna moved to
          reconsider this matter at the Council’s 2/15/00 meeting. The motion was seconded and unanimously
          carried. It was agreed that a neighborhood meeting would be scheduled prior to that time, that
          additional households and the California Park Homeowners Assn. would be notified, and that a notice
          would be published in the newspaper.

       B. City/County Solid Waste Management JPA Committee. City Manager Lando reported that the JPA
          would be terminated in accordance with a notice received from Butte County. He recommended that
          the City committee continue (Councilmembers Herbert and Jarvis) and asked if a third member of
          the Council wanted to serve. The Council agreed that the two Councilmembers could continue as
          a City committee.

       B.   Greater Chico Urban Area Redevelopment Project Area Fund Five Year Trends
       C.   Low & Moderate Income Housing Fund Summary
       D.   Arts Funds

4.2.   CONSIDERATION OF ARTS COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION FOR APPROVAL OF THE CHICO
       OPEN BOARD ART PROJECT

       Risk Manager Koch reported that this matter was originally considered by the Redevelopment Agency
       at its 9/7/99 meeting but was continued to the November budget meeting, and subsequently to today’s
       meeting, pending approval of the revisions to the Agency’s Five-year Implementation Plans in December.

       By memorandum dated 1/10/00, the Risk Manager forwarded a copy of the 1/3/00 revised Chico Open
       Board Art (COBA) project proposal of artists Geno Lucich and Jefferson Goolsby, under the auspices of
       Mountain Valley Arts. The revised proposal envisioned a four-month project similar to the previous
       proposal but with five artists per month, the final selection of four art panels, the creation of an Internet
       web site, and a fund raising auction for funding a 2001 project, at a cost of approximately $16,000. The
       proposed funding source would be the Chico Merged Redevelopment Fine Arts Fund (380).

       At today’s meeting, the Risk Manager provided Council with copies of his memorandum dated 1/14/00
       in which he reported that at its 1/12/00 meeting, the Arts Commission recommended that the Agency
       approve the implementation of the Chico Open Board Art (COBA) project, as set forth in the Mountain
       Valley Arts (MVA) proposal dated 1/3/00, with the modifications described in his memorandum, with a
       project budget of $14,987. If this recommendation was approved, he indicated that a supplemental

     appropriation in this amount from Fund 380, the Chico Merged Redevelopment Fine Arts Fund, would be
     prepared after today’s meeting.

     Todd Hall and Robin Nichols, members of the Arts Commission, along with artists Geno Lucich and Jeff
     Goolsby, discussed the project and responded to questions from the Council. Nancy Lindahl, business
     owner at 204 Main Street, and Douglas Coleman, business owner at 101 Salem Street, spoke in favor
     of the project.

     Following discussion, Councilmember Lange moved approval of the Arts Commission’s recommendation.
     The motion was seconded and carried with Councilmembers Guzzetti, Jarvis, Kirk, Lange and Bertagna
     voting aye, and Councilmembers Herbert and Keene voting no.

     January and April Quarterly Budget Meetings. City Manager Lando reported that Councilmember Kirk
     had suggested not having the January quarterly budget review meeting after the Martin Luther King, Jr.,
     Monday holiday, and he indicated that staff would make this adjustment on next year’s budget calendar.

     The City Manager also reported that the 4/25/00 quarterly budget meeting fell on the fourth Tuesday of
     the month, thereby leaving the third Tuesday open for an evening meeting, and he questioned if the
     Council preferred having only one mid-month meeting. The Council indicated its preference for having
     only one mid-month meeting in April for budget review and not an evening meeting.

6.   ADJOURNMENT.

     The meeting was adjourned at 3:45 p.m. to Tuesday, 2/1/00 at 7:00 p.m. in Conference Room No. 2 if

          February meeting, a loan proposal which would provide a 25% equity position for the Agency at the maximum
          point of risk.

            Maintenance Program. The Committee unanimously recommended (1) funding assistance in the amount of
            $39,993 for initial start-up cost and first year operation to the Downtown Chico Business Association (DCBA)
            for a downtown maintenance program on a trial basis, with funding to begin after Council approval of the
            proposal, and extending through one full budget year thereafter; (2) that the City retain ownership of the
            industrial water pressure washer, be allowed to share in its use, and allocate an additional $2500 per year for
            equipment replacement cost; and (3) that after the first year, the annual operations cost for the program would
            be $30,414, as set forth in the revised proposal dated 11/16/99 submitted by the DCBA.

            (This evening the Council acknowledged receipt of a letter received today from Robert Belgeri, Field
            Representative for SEIU, submitting comments on the City’s involvement in this program.)

       D. (No Council action required -- approved by Council on 1/4/00)
          Approval of Supplemental Appropriation to Fund Security Firm Services at the Chico Depot (Amtrak). The
          Committee unanimously recommended approval of the Supplemental Appropriation allocating the amount
          of $15,000 from the Transit Operations Fund (859) for locking/unlocking security services at the Chico Depot.

       E. (No Agency action required)
          Consideration of Mortgage Subsidy Program Loan Request. The Committee unanimously authorized staff

            Review of Administrative Procedure & Policy for the Acquisition and Disposition of Residential Property
            Previously Assisted by the City or the Redevelopment Agency. The Committee unanimously recommended
            (1) use of the proposed Administrative Procedure and Policy (AP&P) regarding acquisition and sale of
            residential properties as a guideline for the two foreclosure sales that were in progress, with the revisions that
            purchase offers be acceptable to the City Manager, and that the City Manager be authorized to designate
            an acceptable real estate agent from the Board of Realtors; and (2) that the revised AP&P be brought back
            to the Committee for review before final approval was recommended.

       With regard to the Mortgage Subsidy Program (MSP), the City Manager indicated to Councilmember Kirk that
       staff would provide the Council with the recently revised Administrative Procedure & Policy, and the matter could
       be placed on a future agenda if further discussion was desired.

       services, including sanitary sewer connection, and the other properties

       were added after notice to the owners to reflect LAFCo policy for uniform boundaries and to eliminate two

       annexation includes 644 multiple family residential units, two mobile home parks (with approximately 470 mobile
       homes), 1 single family residence and vacant land, all consistent with the General Plan designation of medium
       density residential and R-2 prezoning. The annexation also includes the freeway right of way between East
       Avenue and Eaton Road. This annexation was initiated at the request of the owners of all of the parcels to

       properties on both sides of Mangrove Avenue between East 1st Avenue and East 3rd Avenue. The properties
       are developed with a variety of residential, commercial and office uses. The annexation is being initiated at the
       request of the owner of two parcels at the Mangrove and East 3rd Avenues intersection. The proposed
       annexation boundary reflects LAFCo policy and will eliminate four “islands” of unincorporated territory. The
       Community Development Assistant recommends adoption of the resolution.

2.9.   (Removed from the Consent Agenda at the request of a member of the audience.)
       RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CHICO AMENDING THE CITY’S FEE SCHEDULE
       (AMENDMENT NO. 242 - PARK DEPARTMENT AND AIRPORT FEES)

       By memorandum dated 1/18/00 Management Analyst Herman submits the following City of Chico Fee Schedule
       amendment recommendations: (1) That the City’s Airport Fees be amended to eliminate the maximum $7.50 per
       acre per year and the minimum $100 per year lease fee for the use of City property within the Chico Municipal
       Airport clear zones. This revision will provide for lease rental fees to be based on the fair market lease value
       through a competitive bid process as recommended by the Airport Commission at its 11/30/99 meeting. (2) That
       the City’s Park Department Fees be amended to provide for a park reservation fee for filming activities as
       recommended by the Bidwell Park and Playground Commission at its 2/26/96 meeting. Staff recently discovered
       that this fee schedule amendment had inadvertently not been scheduled for City Council approval. The Airport
       Commission and the Bidwell Park and Playground Commission recommend adoption of the resolution.

       of the notice of vacancy.

2.11. ACCEPTANCE OF THE ANNUAL REPORT OF THE CHICO REDEVELOPMENT AGENCY FOR FISCAL YEAR
      1998-99

      By memorandum dated 12/28/99, the Housing Officer previously distributed this Report to Council. Community
      Redevelopment Law requires that the Chico Redevelopment Agency prepare and submit an annual report to the
      City Council, acting in its capacity as the Executive Board of the Agency, prior to December 31, and that the
      Council review and accept the report, or take any action deemed appropriate, at its first meeting occurring at least
      21 days following receipt of the report. The Housing Officer recommends acceptance of the report.
2.12. APPROVAL OF MINUTES FOR MEETINGS HELD ON DECEMBER 21, 1999, JANUARY 4, 2000, AND JANUARY
      5, 2000

       The Council has been provided with copies of minutes for its meetings held on 12/21/99, 1/4/00, and 1/5/00.

       Councilmember Herbert moved adoption of each resolution and approval of all other items on the Consent
       Agenda, except item 2.9. The motion was seconded and carried by the following vote: AYES: Councilmembers
       Guzzetti, Herbert, Jarvis, Keene, Kirk, Lange and Bertagna. NOES: None. ABSENT: None.

3.     NOTICED PUBLIC HEARINGS

3.1.   HEARING ON APPEAL BY THE CITIZENS FOR COMMUNITY JUSTICE OF THE APPROVAL OF USE PERMIT
       99-28 (AT&T WIRELESS SERVICES) TO ALLOW A TELECOMMUNICATIONS FACILITY ON PROPERTY
       LOCATED AT 215 ORANGE STREET

       Mayor Bertagna removed himself from discussion or voting on this item, and Vice Mayor Herbert presided over
       this portion of the meeting.

       At its 12/7/99 meeting, the Council continued this hearing to this evening’s meeting and directed staff to draft an
       emergency ordinance regulating cellular towers/facilities for consideration at its 1/4/00 meeting, which was
       subsequently continued to its 1/18/00 meeting, at which time motions to adopt such an ordinance failed.

       Planning Director Seidler reported that the Council was again being provided with copies of the memorandum
       dated 11/12/99 from Planning Division Staff reporting that at its 9/13/99 meeting, the Planning Commission
       approved a use permit, with conditions, to allow a telecommunications facility on an existing water tower located
       at 215 Orange Street, Assessor’s Parcel No. 004-038-003, in an ML Light Manufacturing/Industrial zoning district
       and designated on the General Plan Diagram as Manufacturing and Warehousing. This decision was
       subsequently appealed by the Citizens for Community Justice. Planning Division staff was recommending

                                                    February 1, 2000

       adoption of the resolution, subject to any changes the Council may determine to make following the public
       hearing.

       Reed Wilson, AT&T Wireless, reported that they would be required to file an annual report with the Federal
       Communications Commission (FCC) regarding emissions and would provide a copy to the City, and would also
       provide a report at any time there were any changes in emissions. This evening the Council was provided with
       copies of a letter dated 1/26/00 from AT&T Wireless Services providing additional information supporting
       approval of the use permit and denial of the appeal.

       Marcia Dean, 2725 Mariposa Avenue, recommended that no additional facilities be approved until a revised
       ordinance was adopted by the Council. Doug Perske, 2732 Silver Oak Drive, agreed and noted that this facility
       was not consistent with the County’s ordinance in that it was less than the 1,000 feet from any residence. Maggie
       Van Dame, 2695 Silver Oak Drive, indicated that if Council approved the use permit it should include strict
       conditions and the monitoring should be done by a third party. Chris Perske, 2732 Silver Oak Drive, pointed out
       that the Council could impose any conditions on the use permit since the FCC only regulated emissions, was
       disappointed the emergency ordinance was not adopted, and asked that the Council take no action until a revised
       ordinance was adopted. Linnea Hanson, 2837 Mariposa Avenue, believed that no cellular facilities should be
       located in residential areas.

       Bob Linscheid, CEPCO, recommended approval of the use permit for the benefit of businesses and imposing any
       conditions that would protect the health and safety of residents. Robb Cheal, 407 West 9th Street, indicated he
       was a broadcaster who depended on such facilities and noted that AT&T was attempting to meet the needs of
       the community. Michael Watson, 2815 Mariposa Avenue, recommended that facilities not be located in residential
       areas. Harold Carlson, 2837 Mariposa Avenue, asked that the Council wait for adoption of a revised ordinance.
       Steven Post-Jeys, 1363 East 16th Street, noted that the aesthetics of towers were one issue and the other was
       consideration of health issues related to emissions.

       No one else spoke from the audience, and the Vice Mayor declared the hearing closed.

       RESOLUTION NO. 88 99-00 -- RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CHICO APPROVING,
       WITH CONDITIONS, USE PERMIT 99-28 (AT&T WIRELESS SERVICES) TO ALLOW A
       TELECOMMUNICATIONS FACILITY AT 215 ORANGE STREET. After reading the title, Councilmember Jarvis
       moved that the resolution be amended to provide that an annual monitoring report be provided to the City by an
       independent third party approved by the City and paid for by AT&T, that AT&T perform a monitoring analysis
       by an RF engineer at the site prior to installation of its facilities to get base numbers, that the use will comply with
       any changes in FCC standards, and that the resolution be adopted as amended. The motion was seconded and
       carried by the following vote: AYES: Councilmembers Guzzetti, Herbert, Jarvis, Keene, Kirk and Lange. NOES:
       None. ABSTAIN: Councilmember Bertagna. ABSENT: None.

       ----------------------------------
       The Council recessed for 10 minutes and reconvened at 8:55 p.m.
       ----------------------------------

4.1.   ITEMS REMOVED FROM THE CONSENT AGENDA.
       (This item was taken out of order as listed on the agenda.)

       2.9. Resolution Amending Park & Airport Fees. Mayor Bertagna announced that the Airport Manager was
            recommending that this item be continued in order that he could resolve questions that members of the
            audience might have relating to the Airport fees. Councilmember Kirk moved that the resolution be continued
            for two weeks. The motion was seconded and unanimously carried.

           This evening the Council was advised that on page 4 of 4 of the Park Fees, item 3.b. Non-Intensive Use


                                                              7
                                                  February 1, 2000

           Areas, the fee for Partial Day (4 hours or less) should be $150 rather than $100, and the fee for Full Day (over
           4 hours) should be $300 rather than $200. The correction would be made before returning the resolution to
           Council for adoption.

3.2.   HEARING ON APPEAL BY TIMOTHY VANDERHEIDEN OF THE PLANNING COMMISSION’S APPROVAL OF
       USE PERMIT NO. 99-40 TO ALLOW A SECOND DWELLING UNIT AT 1646 BROADWAY STREET

       (Earlier in this meeting, this hearing was continued to the Council’s 2/15/00 meeting.)
       This evening the Council was provided with a letter dated 1/27/00 from Timothy Vander Heiden requesting
       continuance of this hearing to 2/15/00, and a memorandum dated 1/28/00 from the Planning Director reporting that
       neither the applicant, Mr. Maderos, nor staff had any objection to the request for a continuance to 2/15/00.

       By memorandum dated 1/13/00, Associate Planner Sigona reported that at its 12/2/99 meeting, the Planning
       Commission approved, with conditions, Use Permit No. 99-40 (Maderos) to allow an 843 square foot second
       dwelling unit on a 6,300 square foot parcel identified as 1646 Broadway Street, Assessor’s Parcel No. 005-197-016,
       in an R1 Low Density Residential zoning district, designated on the General Plan as Low Density Residential. The
       use permit was approved on a vote of 6-0-1. This approval was appealed by a neighbor, Timothy VanderHeiden,
       who opposed the project, citing its inconsistency with neighborhood design. Planning Division Staff
       recommended that the City Council deny the appeal, upholding the Planning Commission’s approval of Use Permit
       No. 99-40.

3.3.   HEARING ON PROPOSAL BY DAN HAYS AND GENE DAMSCHEN TO MAKE A GIFT OF LAND TO THE CITY
       FOR THE EXTENSION OF IVY STREET

       Community Development Director Baptiste reviewed his memorandum dated 1/24/00 in which he reported that at
       the 10/5/99 Council meeting, the Council considered an Internal Affairs Committee recommendation to approve
       the Dan Hays/Gene Damschen proposal to make a gift of land to the City for the extension of Ivy Street. Neither
       Mr. Hays nor Mr. Damschen were in attendance at that meeting. Council did not approve the proposal and
       directed staff to confirm that Mr. Hays and Mr. Damschen still intended to proceed with their gift offer and to
       schedule a hearing for consideration of this matter at a subsequent Council meeting. After confirming that they
       wished to proceed with the proposal, a neighborhood meeting was convened on 12/15/99. Approximately 10
       citizens attended the meeting and no objections to the proposal were expressed to staff. The attendees were
       informed that there would be a subsequent Council meeting for consideration of this matter, and neighborhood
       residents have been notified of this hearing. He added that the property consisted of street facilities that would
       be constructed to City standards from the existing northerly terminus of Ivy Street, and ending in a cul-de-sac
       southerly of West 22nd Street. He answered questions from Councilmember Keene about the narrowing of the
       street on the north end.

       Dan Hays, 1041 Cherry Street #2, reported that they had worked with neighbors in keeping them informed and with
       the City on the standards for the street.

       City Manager Lando reported that although the street was proposed as a gift now, the City could impose more
       conditions when final development plans were approved. In addition, Ivy Street could be extended northerly and
       need widening if the Diamond Match property was developed in the future. Public Works Director Ross indicated
       that in that case, the street would need to be widened from 44 to 66 feet.

       Gene Damschen, 901 East Lassen Avenue #98, reported that they initially offered to deed the property to the City
       in the belief that they could get some tax benefits, however, they have subsequently been advised by a tax
       attorney that they would not receive any benefits. However, they would nevertheless carry through with their
       offer if the City wanted to accept it.

       Steven Post-Jeys, 1363 East 16th Street, recommended that the City wait until development occurred so it would


                                                            8
                                                 February 1, 2000

       not incur costs to maintain the street and later make improvements. Robb Cheal, 407 West 9th Street, believed that
       the City needed to consider long-range development plans as the population increased rather than proceeding
       on a piecemeal basis.

       No one else spoke from the audience and the Mayor declared the hearing closed.

       Councilmember Kirk moved that the City not accept the dedication of the street improvements at this time. The
       motion was seconded and unanimously carried.

3.4.   HEARING ON REZONE NO. 99-6 (WELLS FARGO BANK) - PROPOSED REZONE OF A 0.71 ACRE PAD SITE
       AT THE NORTHEAST CORNER OF EAST AND MARIPOSA AVENUES FROM PD/CN PLANNED
       DEVELOPMENT NEIGHBORHOOD COMMERCIAL TO CC COMMUNITY COMMERCIAL

       Planning Director Seidler reported that at its 12/7/99 meeting the City Council continued this hearing to this
       meeting at the request of the applicant. The Council was again being provided with a memorandum dated 10/27/99
       from Associate Planner Sigona reporting that this application represented a proposed rezone of a 0.71 acre
       shopping center pad site, located at the northeast corner of East and Mariposa Avenues, from PD/CN Planned
       Development Neighborhood Commercial to CC Community Commercial, to provide for greater marketing flexibility
       and to facilitate development of the site with a fast food use with a drive-through service lane. The Planning
       Commission recommended City Council denial of the rezone. The application was being forwarded to Council
       without environmental review under a California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) provision that the Act does
       not require environmental review for projects which are recommended for disapproval.

       This evening the Council was provided with a letter dated 1/21/00 from Jeffrey Rader, Vice President of Wells
       Fargo Bank, supporting the rezoning, and a memorandum dated 1/28/00 from the Planning Director showing where
       there were differences in the PD/CN and CC Districts.

       Jeff Rader, Wells Fargo Bank, provided Council with a drawing of a proposed drive-through restaurant facility
       which he thought would meet the needs of the neighborhood, should not create an increase in traffic, and would
       make the property more marketable.

       No one else spoke from the audience and the Mayor closed the hearing.

       Councilmember Guzzetti noted that the General Plan’s intent was to not increase traffic on East Avenue, and with
       a drive-through facility traffic would likely increase and cause air pollution from idling vehicles. Councilmember
       Kirk observed that a restaurant without a drive-through facility would require more parking. Councilmember
       Keene thought the facility would benefit users of Wildwood Park. Mayor Bertagna believed that a drive-through
       facility would benefit the area and residents would not have to travel as far to reach one. Councilmember Jarvis
       was opposed to a drive-through facility because of its related air pollution from vehicles.

       Following discussion, Councilmember Herbert moved to deny Rezone No. 99-6 and to ask the Planning
       Commission to consider a Code amendment to allow drive-through facilities in NC districts with a use permit. The
       motion was seconded but failed to carry with Councilmembers Herbert, Keene and Bertagna voting aye, and
       Councilmembers Guzzetti, Jarvis, Kirk and Lange voting no.

       Councilmember Jarvis then moved to deny Rezone No. 99-6. The motion was seconded and carried with
       Councilmembers Guzzetti, Jarvis, Kirk, Lange and Bertagna voting aye, and Councilmembers Herbert and Keene
       voting no.

       ----------------------------------
       The Council recessed for 5 minutes and reconvened at 10:25 p.m. Councilmember Guzzetti was absent from the
       meeting at this time.

3.5.   HEARING ON ANNEXATION -- DAYTON ROAD ANNEXATION DISTRICT NO. 3

       Community Development Assistant Sellers reviewed his memorandum dated 1/6/00 in which he reported on the
       annexation of 5 parcels and a total of 2.615 acres, located at 1017 Pomona Avenue; 1208, 1210, 1212 and 1222
       Dayton Road; and 1014 Archer Avenue. The area was designated as low density residential in the General Plan
       and prezoned R-1 Single Family Residential. Four of the parcels were developed or developing with 5 single family
       residences. The Pomona Avenue parcel was improved with a restaurant. The annexation also included the
       remainder of the Dayton Road right of way between Pomona Avenue and Orange Street. This annexation was
       initiated at the request of the owner of two of the parcels to facilitate sanitary sewer connection for new single
       family residences. As this uninhabited (fewer than 12 registered voters) annexation included properties which
       did not request annexation, the City Council must hold a hearing to receive protests to annexation. Based on the
       size of the protest, the Council must take one of the following actions: (1) Terminate the annexation if a majority
       protest was filed. (2) Approve the annexation if the protest represented less than 50% of the assessed value of
       land in the area proposed for annexation. In the absence of a valid protest, the Community Development
       Assistant recommended adoption of the resolution.

       No one spoke from the audience, no written protests were received, and the Mayor declared the hearing closed.

       RESOLUTION NO. 89 99-00 -- RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CHICO ORDERING
       PROPERTY LOCATED IN THE UNINCORPORATED TERRITORY OF THE COUNTY OF BUTTE ANNEXED TO
       THE INCORPORATED TERRITORY OF THE CITY OF CHICO 00-13 - CITY OF CHICO - DAYTON ROAD
       ANNEXATION DISTRICT NO. 3. After reading the title, Councilmember Kirk moved adoption of the resolution.
       The motion was seconded and carried by the following vote: AYES: Councilmembers Herbert, Jarvis, Keene, Kirk,
       Lange and Bertagna. NOES: None. ABSENT: Councilmember Guzzetti.

3.6.   PUBLIC HEARING ON 1999 LOT CLEANING ASSESSMENTS

       Fire Chief Brown reviewed his memorandum dated 12/27/99 in which he reported that the lot cleaning program was
       conducted each year under the provisions of the California Government Code. Pursuant to those provisions, the
       City was required to hold a public meeting, which was held by the Council on 1/18/00, and a public hearing, which
       was scheduled for this evening, before approving the placement of the assessments (the costs incurred by the
       City for performing the lot cleaning plus administrative costs) on the 1999-00 tax roll. Affected property owners
       were provided with written notice of the public meeting and public hearing, and a list of those property owners
       whose lot cleaning bills remain unpaid as of 12/27/99, was attached to the Fire Chief’s memorandum. He
       recommended that the City Council (1) hear any protests or comments at this public hearing; (2) approve the
       waiving or sustaining of abatement costs for various parcels as recommended in his memorandum; (3) make any
       changes or corrections it deemed appropriate in the assessments based on any protests or comments received
       this evening; and (4) approve the placement of the assessments on the 1999-00 tax roll.

       No one spoke from the audience and the Mayor declared the hearing closed.

       Councilmember Keene moved approval of the waiving or sustaining of abatement costs for the various parcels
       as recommended in the Fire Chief’s memorandum, and approval of placing of the assessments on the 1999-00 tax
       roll. The motion was seconded and carried with Councilmember Guzzetti being absent.

3.7.   INITIAL HEARING ON FORMATION OF MAINTENANCE DISTRICT NO. 90 -- (AMBER
       GROVE/GREENFIELD/PETERSON SUBDIVISIONS)

       Public Works Director Ross reviewed his memorandum dated 1/13/00 in which he forwarded the Engineer’s
       Report for Maintenance District No. 90 (Amber Grove, Greenfield/Peterson Subdivisions), generally located west


                                                           10
                                                 February 1, 2000

       of the Esplanade just south of the Esplanade/Eaton Road intersection. The purpose of forming the proposed
       maintenance district was to levy annual assessments against the parcels within the District to fund the operation
       and maintenance of public improvements that were of special benefit to the subdivisions. The Engineer’s Report
       described the boundaries of the proposed district, the public improvements to be funded, how the amount of the
       annual assessment was calculated and how it was apportioned among the parcels. Proposition 218 required a vote
       of the property owners to establish the assessment. Ballots, copies of the Engineer’s Report, and a notice of the
       two hearings were mailed to all affected property owners.

       The purpose of this initial hearing was for the Council to receive and consider the Engineer’s Report as well as
       all comments on the report or any other matter relevant to the establishment of the proposed district. The final
       protest hearing on the district had been scheduled for 2/15/00, at the conclusion of which the ballots received
       either supporting or opposing formation of the district would be tabulated. If the majority of votes received were
       in favor of the proposed Maintenance District, the Council could order its formation, and if the majority of votes
       received were opposed, District formation proceedings would be abandoned. At the conclusion of this evening’s
       hearing the Council could adopt a motion to either approve the Engineer’s Report as presented, modify the Report
       and approve it as modified, or abandon proceedings on the proposed district.

       The Mayor recommended that advance neighborhood meetings be held for these types of districts where the area
       is already developed.

       Mike Nicholas, 3202 Caspar Court (Greenfield), noted that the areas to be irrigated were small and were next to
       fences, and he suggested they instead be filled with gravel to reduce costs since they only benefitted adjacent
       property owners. John Robinson, 3298 Mt. Whitney Court (Almond Grove) recommended waiting until the
       Peterson Subdivision was developed. In response to Everett Kitto, 307 Sandy Cove Drive (Ambergrove), the
       Public Works Director noted that assessments on properties in the subdivisions may have been higher before
       they were annexed to the City. Mr. Kitto was in favor of a neighborhood meeting and also waiting for
       development of the Peterson Subdivision. Ken Gilliland, 301 Sandy Cove (Ambergrove) thought the total costs
       were high for what was being maintained.

       No one else spoke from the audience and the Mayor declared the hearing closed.

       Councilmember Keene moved to modify the Engineer’s Report to separate out the Peterson Subdivision, to
       approve the Report as modified, and to hold the final protest hearing on 2/15/00 or continue it at that time to a
       subsequent meeting if a neighborhood meeting could not be scheduled before then. The motion was seconded
       and carried with Councilmember Guzzetti being absent.

3.8.   HEARING ON FORMATION OF MAINTENANCE DISTRICT NO. 80, HOME DEPOT SHOPPING CENTER

       Community Development Director Baptiste reviewed his memorandum dated 1/12/00 in which he reported that
       this resolution would order the formation of Chico Maintenance Assessment District No. 80. As a condition of
       development of this property, generally located east of SHR 99 and south of the Skyway, the developers had
       consented to the formation of this district for the operation and maintenance of landscaping and irrigation along
       the SHR 99 right of way and the City of Chico right of way. This maintenance assessment district would provide
       that the City perform (or contract for) the operation and maintenance services which would be paid for by the
       property owners. The maintenance of the public improvements along SHR 99 would be assumed by the state
       after a twenty-year period. Future annual assessments would be paid at the time property taxes were collected.
       He recommended adoption of the Resolution.

       No one spoke from the audience and the Mayor declared the hearing closed.

       RESOLUTION NO. 90 99-00 -- RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CHICO ORDERING
       FORMATION OF A MAINTENANCE DISTRICT PURSUANT TO THE MAINTENANCE DISTRICT

       carried by the following vote: AYES: Councilmembers Herbert, Jarvis, Keene, Kirk, Lange and Bertagna. NOES:
       None. ABSENT: Councilmember Guzzetti.

       Councilmember Herbert moved that the Council continue this evening’s meeting past 11:00 p.m. The motion was
       seconded and carried with Councilmember Guzzetti being absent.

3.9.   HEARING ON ABANDONMENT AND VACATION OF A PUBLIC UTILITY EASEMENT (LOT 4, THE
       FAIRWAYS AT CANYON OAKS SUBDIVISION)

       Public Works Director Ross reviewed his memorandum dated 1/18/00 in which he reported that the property
       owner, Canyon Oaks, LLC, a limited liability company, had petitioned the City to abandon the 3-foot-wide public
       utility easement on Lot 4 of the Fairways at Canyon Oaks Subdivision, to allow for future development of the
       property. At its 1/4/00 meeting, the City Council adopted a resolution of intention to abandon this easement and
       set a public hearing for 2/1/00. The Director of Public Works recommended adoption of the resolution.

       No one spoke from the audience and the Mayor declared the hearing closed.

       RESOLUTION NO. 91 99-00 -- RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CHICO ORDERING
       ABANDONMENT AND VACATION OF A PUBLIC UTILITY EASEMENT PURSUANT TO THE PUBLIC

       OAKS SUBDIVISION, ASSESSOR'S PARCEL NO. 011-800-004). After reading the title, Councilmember Kirk
       moved adoption of the resolution. The motion was seconded and carried by the following vote: AYES:
       Councilmembers Herbert, Jarvis, Keene, Kirk, Lange and Bertagna. NOES: None. ABSENT: Councilmember
       Guzzetti.

       Councilmember Jarvis reviewed a memorandum dated 1/14/00 from the Internal Affairs Committee which provided
       a report on its meeting held on 1/11/00, at which time the matters listed below were considered. Committee

4.3.   CONSIDERATION OF PLANNING THE BIENNIAL APPRECIATION DINNER FOR COUNCIL, BOARDS,
       COMMISSIONS AND COMMITTEES

       City Clerk Evans inquired whether any Councilmembers would be interested in working with her office on planning

4.     REGULAR AGENDA.

4.1.   REVIEW & CONSIDERATION OF VARIOUS TRAFFIC CONTROL STANDARDS & MEASURES.

       City Manager Lando reported that the Council’s Internal Affairs Committee recommended this meeting of the City
       Council and Planning Commission due to the number of requests it has received and considered for alternate
       street standards or designs, traffic control measures or traffic calming measures. Members of the Council and
       Commission were previously provided with binders assembled by the Department of Public Works containing
       traffic measures used in a variety of communities to make traffic and neighborhoods compatible. Provided with
       this agenda was a memorandum dated 1/31/00 from the Director of Public Works regarding the existing street
       standards for both public and private streets.

       The City Manager introduced Tom DiGiovanni of Heritage Partners and John Anderson of Anderson Lamb &
       Associates, who would be making presentations this evening.

       Assistant Public Works Director Hislop reviewed various street classifications as defined in the General Plan,
       including freeways, expressways, major and minor arterials, local streets and rural streets, and noted an example
       of each and its location on a display map.

       John Anderson reviewed various traffic calming measures that could be installed on streets, how such measures
       modified the design of a street to slow traffic, some of the already existing design features or public improvements
       (e.g. drainage) that needed to be considered before they were installed, access for emergency vehicles, whether
       installing such measures could move traffic to adjacent streets of cause spikes in traffic speed after a vehicle
       passed the traffic calming device, cost/budget considerations by the public agency, and keeping neighbors
       informed whenever traffic calming measures were being proposed.

       The City Manager stated that he would provide the Council with the location of the traffic circle in the City of
       Davis.

       Tom DiGiovanni explained the need to design residential streets during the planning phase of any development
       in order to avoid future traffic problems and mentioned a number of resources that were available for designing
       streets.

       ----------------------------------
       The Council recessed for 10 minutes and reconvened at 8:05 p.m.
       ----------------------------------

                                                 February 8, 2000



       Gary Incaudo encouraged the Council to consider measures that would keep traffic moving at a safe speed rather
       than causing vehicles to stop/start or slow down/speed up several times, thus increasing air pollution and causing
       related respiratory diseases. Other members of the audience observed that vehicles sometimes sped up to go over
       speed bumps, that entire neighborhoods should be considered when installing traffic calming devices, that the
       City and County should plan their transit system in a way that would reduce the number of vehicles using local
       streets, that installing traffic calming measures to meet the demands of new growth would be costly and perhaps
       they could be installed on an incremental basis, that the public needed more education regarding safe vehicle
       speeds, and that air pollution from vehicles might actually be decreasing based on information from the Butte
       County Air Pollution Control District.

       Planning Commissioner Monfort believed that the City needed to consider more of the traffic calming measures
       mentioned this evening, and Commissioner Dietle asked about cameras that took photos of traffic violators.

       In response to questions, Mr. Anderson noted that one city formed a maintenance district to finance traffic
       measures, and Mr. DiGiovanni added that residents can be supportive if they are aware in advance how traffic
       calming devices can benefit their neighborhood.

       The City Manager reported that residents could be provided with radar guns at their request to clock speeders
       and were then mailed a letter from the Police Department. The Chief of Police explained that concentrated
       enforcement in particular neighborhoods usually resulted in residents of that neighborhood being cited for
       violations. He also noted that cameras installed at intersections that took photos of traffic violators were quite
       costly.

       Mr. Anderson observed that drivers received cues regarding speed from the design of a street and not always
       from traffic signs. He also suggested that when traffic calming devices were installed the City should determine
       if other street improvements should be done at the same time, rather than proceeding in a piecemeal fashion.

       Councilmember Jarvis suggested the City consider a program similar to one in Seattle that involved
       neighborhoods and then used a ranking system to prioritize projects. The Council agreed with her suggestion
       that the Internal Affairs Committee place this item on its pending list.

4.2.   ITEMS ADDED AFTER POSTING OF THE AGENDA.

       Future Meeting. City Manager Lando reported that representatives at California State University, Chico, had
       offered to have their master plan consultant make a presentation to the Council regarding the CSUC Master Plan
       on either February 17 or 18. The Council asked staff to place the matter on the 2/15/00 agenda for further
       consideration.

       Raley Boulevard, Bruce Road and Forest Avenue. Adoption of the resolution will schedule a public hearing on
       the matter for 3/7/00 at 7:30 p.m. The Director of Public Works recommends adoption of the resolution.

       RESOLUTION NO. 95 99-00 -- RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CHICO AMENDING THE
       CITY’S FEE SCHEDULE (AMENDMENT NO. 242 - PARK DEPARTMENT FEES).

       By memorandum dated 2/3/00 Management Analyst Herman submits the recommendation from the Bidwell Park
       and Playground Commission to amend the City’s Park Department Fees to provide for a park reservation fee for
       filming activities in the City parks. The Commission approved this amendment at its 2/26/96 meeting and staff
       recently discovered that this fee schedule amendment had inadvertently not been scheduled for City Council
       approval. The Bidwell Park and Playground Commission recommends adoption of the resolution.

       Amendments to Airport Fees were included in this resolution when it was removed from the 2/1/00 Consent
       Agenda. The Airport Fees will be considered separately at a future meeting.

       APPROVAL OF LINDO CHANNEL ENCROACHMENTS — POLICIES AND PROCEDURES
       At its meeting of 11/23/99, the City Council considered a draft policy for encroachments in Lindo Channel as
       recommended by the Bidwell Park and Playground Commission. The City Council approved the policy with
       modifications and requested that staff make revisions and schedule for final City Council action. Staff revised
       the policy which was reviewed by the Bidwell Park and Playground Commission on 1/31/00 and approved with
       some additional language clarifications. By memorandum dated 2/2/00, the Park Director presents the revised
       policy recommendation for City Council consideration. The Bidwell Park and Playground Commission and Park
       Director recommend Council approval.

       By letter dated 2/2/00, Stephen A. White has withdrawn his request to abandon/vacate a portion of the
       East Ninth Avenue and Lindo Avenue right-of-way. (This matter was originally scheduled for public hearing on
       1/4/00, at which time the hearing was continued to this evening at Mr. White’s request.) All interested parties
       will be notified by copy of this agenda that the request has been withdrawn and the hearing canceled. Staff
       recommends acceptance of the withdrawal of the request for abandonment and cancellation of the hearing.

       MINUTE ORDER NO. 4-00 — AUTHORIZING FOR CITY MANAGER TO ENTER INTO A MONTH-TO-MONTH
       AGREEMENT TO ALLOW CATTLE GRAZING ON THE FOOTHILL EAST PRESERVE PROPERTY.

       The City has received proposals from several parties expressing interest in leasing the Foothill East Preserve
       Property for cattle grazing. The grazing use has been reviewed, and it has been determined that it is consistent
       with the Foothill East Preserve Management Plan and would not adversely affect the resources located on the
       property. This Minute Order would authorize the City Manager to enter into a lease agreement with Jerry Bradley
       for the current grazing season and provide authority to the City Manager to enter into future lease agreement for
       cattle grazing consistent with the Preserve Management Plan on the Foothill East Preserve. The Community
       Development Director recommends approval of the Minute Order.

       Councilmember Keene moved adoption of each resolution and approval of all other items on the Consent Agenda,
       except items 2.4, 2.5 and 2.8. The motion was seconded and carried by the following vote: AYES: Councilmembers
       Guzzetti, Herbert, Jarvis, Keene, Kirk, Lange and Bertagna. NOES: None. ABSTAIN: Councilmember Guzzetti
       (item 2.2). ABSENT: None.

3.     NOTICED PUBLIC HEARINGS.

3.1.   HEARING ON APPEAL BY TIMOTHY VANDER HEIDEN OF THE PLANNING COMMISSION’S APPROVAL

                                                           4
                                                February 15, 2000


       OF USE PERMIT NO. 99-40 TO ALLOW A SECOND DWELLING UNIT AT 1646 BROADWAY STREET

       This hearing was continued from the 2/1/00 meeting. By memorandum dated 1/13/00 Associate Planner Sigona
       reported that at its 12/2/99 meeting, the Planning Commission approved, with conditions, Use Permit No. 99-40
       (Maderos) to allow an 843 square foot second dwelling unit on a 6,300 square foot parcel identified as 1646
       Broadway Street, Assessor’s Parcel No. 005-197-016, in an R1 Low Density Residential zoning district, designated
       on the General Plan as Low Density Residential. The use permit was approved on a vote of 6-0-1. This approval
       had been appealed by a neighbor, Timothy Vander Heiden, who opposed the project, citing its inconsistency with
       neighborhood design. Planning Division Staff recommended that the City Council deny the appeal, upholding
       the Planning Commission’s approval of Use Permit No. 99-40.

       This evening the Council received a memorandum dated 2/10/00 from Associate Planner Sigona forwarding a letter
       from the applicant, Matt Maderos, withdrawing his use permit application. Therefore, the appeal was moot and
       this hearing was canceled.

3.2.   HEARING ON FORMATION OF UNDERGROUND DISTRICT NO. 14
       Assistant Director of Public Works Hislop reviewed his memorandum dated 1/31/00 which provided a report on
       this proposal to form Underground District No. 14 on East Avenue and adjacent properties between Cohasset
       Road and Manzanita Avenue, and also to order the undergrounding of existing overhead utility facilities within
       Area A of the district between Ceanothus Avenue and Manzanita Avenue. The undergrounding project would
       be financed with the City’s allocation of Utility Company Rule 20A funds, and a portion of the County of Butte’s
       allocation of Utility Company Rule 20A funds. A request had been forwarded to Butte County to form a
       companion underground district covering those properties within the district boundary that were under County
       jurisdiction. A neighborhood meeting to receive input from affected property owners was held on 1/18/00. All
       notices of this hearing were published and sent in conformance with Chapter 14.44 of the Chico Municipal Code.
       He recommended adoption of the resolution.

       No one spoke from the audience and the Mayor declared the hearing closed.




       RESOLUTION NO. 96 99-00 -- RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CHICO (1) DECLARING
       AND DETERMINING A CERTAIN AREA WITHIN THE CITY AS AN UNDERGROUND DISTRICT
       (UNDERGROUND DISTRICT NO. 14), AND (2) FINDING AND DETERMINING THAT THE PUBLIC NECESSITY,
       HEALTH OR SAFETY REQUIRE REMOVAL OF POLES, OVERHEAD WIRES AND ASSOCIATED
       STRUCTURES, AND ORDERING REMOVAL OF SAME (UNDERGROUND DISTRICT NO. 14, AREA A). After
       reading the title, Councilmember Kirk moved adoption of the resolution. The motion was seconded and carried
       by the following vote: AYES: Councilmembers Guzzetti, Herbert, Jarvis, Keene, Kirk, Lange and Bertagna. NOES:
       None. ABSENT: None.

3.3.   HEARING ON GENERAL PLAN AMENDMENT/REZONE/PREZONE NO. 99-3 (CITY OF CHICO)

       Senior Planner Hayes reviewed a memorandum dated 1/14/00 from Associate Planner Sigona which reported that
       this application consisted of General Plan amendments, rezones and prezones for various locations throughout
       the Chico Urban Area to correct inconsistencies between the existing land use patterns and the existing General
       Plan designations and zoning. The proposed changes were intended to correct errors that occurred during the
       General Plan update. The Planning Commission recommended City Council approval of General Plan
       Amendment/Rezone/Prezone Nos. 99-3 A, C, E, F, G, H and I, including adoption of the proposed Negative
       Declaration of Environmental Impact.

       No one spoke from the audience and the Mayor declared the hearing closed.

4.    REGULAR AGENDA.

4.1   ITEMS REMOVED FROM THE CONSENT AGENDA

      2.4.   Resolution No. 95 99-00 Amending the City’s Fee Schedule re Park Department Fees. The Park Director
             responded to questions from Caryn Jones and from members of the Council regarding reservation fees for
             exclusive use of park areas for filming and other purposes.

             Following discussion, and after reading the title, Councilmember Keene moved adoption of Resolution No.
             95 99-00. The motion was seconded and carried by the following vote: AYES: Councilmembers Guzzetti,
             Herbert, Jarvis, Keene,, Kirk, Lange and Bertagna. NOES: None. ABSENT: None.

      2.5.   Lindo Channel Encroachments -- Policies & Procedures. City Manager Lando removed himself from
             participating in any discussion of this item.

             Mayor Bertagna suggested a five-year timeline for the policies and an annual report from the Park Director
             on what accomplishments were made and what problems were left. Councilmember Keene thought
             Category III (permanent structures) would be handled on a case-by-case basis, each having its own plan
             for removal. Councilmember Jarvis indicated to Councilmember Keene that the policies provided for an
             appeal process for extenuating circumstances. Councilmember Lange suggested a timeline for
             identification of encroachments be established with an annual report to Council. Councilmember Keene
             stated his concern with placing an undue burden on a landowner to secure a survey or other information
             to support extenuating circumstances in order to make his/her case, that he’d prefer that the City take on
             the burden of verification, and that he’d recommend adding “possible” extenuating circumstances.

             In response to the Mayor, Park Director Beardsley reported that Council previously expressed concerns
             regarding rip-rap and sheds, so the Park Commission moved them from Category IV (non-permanent
             structures) to Category III (permanent structures), thereby giving owners more time to remove them. He
             also indicated that he believed that the paragraph on “Identification” clearly outlined the responsibility
             of the Park Department, thereby diminishing any undue burden on a property owner.

             Caryn Jones, 5 Deborah Terrace, recommended that it not be left up to the public only to make complaints
             about encroachments, that she had provided staff with documents and maps indicating the location of
             many encroachments, and that a fixed period of time should be established for dealing with all
             encroachments. Helen Ost, 1255 East Lindo Avenue, suggested that the City make sure that no new
             encroachments occurred after the policies were adopted. Park Commissioner Russell Mills believed that
             property owners were not likely to dispute an identified encroachment, but rather why their encroachment
             should be considered a hardship case, and he recommended that the Park Commission be allowed to decide
             how to implement the policies and set timelines.

             Councilmember Jarvis recommended that the Park Commission be requested to develop a policy on the
             prevention of encroachments, and that once an encroachment was identified timelines should be developed
             from the time a complaint was received by the Park Department, the time for its investigation, and the time
             for notifying the property owner. Further, the “Objective” paragraph of the policies should have a five-
             year or other time-certain limit, but new encroachments needed to be taken into consideration.


                                                          6
                                                   February 15, 2000


              Councilmember Kirk agreed with the concept but questioned the practicality of fixed timelines if the Park
              Director received a large number of complaints at one time. Councilmember Jarvis noted that each
              encroachment category needed a certain amount of time and the Park Director could submit his
              recommendations thereon to the Council. Mayor Bertagna thought this might not be realistic.
              Councilmember Keene stated this was the reason for recommending five years, and extenuating
              circumstances would not be considered for any new encroachments. In the paragraph relating to
              “extenuating circumstances” he recommended adding the word “compelling” and then deleting the words
              “Upon receipt of additional information” the Park Director shall verify the accuracy of the dispute, etc.
              Mayor Bertagna asked if the paragraph on “Exception for Category Va” relating to gardens, should be
              changed to have the Park Director rather than the Park Commission issue the permit. Councilmember
              Guzzetti confirmed that he had suggested five years when the policies were last considered by the Council,
              however, the Park Commission did a good job on the policies and the Commission and Director should be
              trusted to make sound decisions.

              Following discussion, Councilmember Jarvis moved approval of the policies and procedures with the
              following changes: (1) add the words “compelling or” in front of “extenuating circumstances” at the bottom
              of page 3, and (2) delete the words “upon receipt of additional information” in the first paragraph on page
              4, and request the Park Commission to provide the Council with time frames for identified encroachments,
              ongoing encroachments, and prevention of new encroachments. The motion was seconded and carried
              with Councilmember Keene voting no.

              ----------------------------------
              The Council recessed for 10 minutes and reconvened at 9:30 p.m.
              ----------------------------------

       2.8.   Minute Order No. 4-00 — Cattle Grazing Lease on Foothill East Preserve Property. In response to
              Councilmember Kirk, Community Development Director Baptiste reported that the lease period would be
              between November 15 and May 15, that the preserve plan called for grazing because it was beneficial, that
              several inquiries about grazing were received by the City because last year’s fires eliminated many grazing
              areas, that other uses were allowed and could be considered by the Council, and that the grazing lease
              allowed for a certain amount of food to be brought onto the property to feed the cattle. The City Manager
              added that in the future the grazing period could end on April 1 if Council was concerned about cattle
              mixing with members of the public who might enter the property.

              Following discussion, Councilmember Kirk moved approval of Minute Order No. 4-00 only for this grazing
              season, with City staff to provide the Council with more information in November regarding future leases.
              The motion was seconded and unanimously carried.

4.2.   RECONSIDERATION OF ACTIONS TAKEN BY THE CITY COUNCIL ON 1/4/00 REGARDING TRAFFIC
       CONTROLS ON YOSEMITE DRIVE

       At its meeting of 1/4/00, the City Council approved installation of: (1) striping at the edge of Yosemite from SHR
       32 to Brookside North, and centerline “yellow skip” striping; (2) permanent curb return bulbing at Palisades,
       Idyllwild North and Delaney; and (3) two permanent traffic circles at Brookside North and Brookside South. At
       its meeting of 1/18/00, the Council agreed to reconsider these actions on 2/15/00 pursuant to Councilmember
       Kirk’s request, and directed staff to conduct another neighborhood meeting in the interim. A neighborhood
       meeting was held on 2/7/00, and staff was to provide a verbal report at this evening’s meeting. By memorandum
       dated 2/4/00, the City Clerk provided a summary of the Council’s 1/4/00 actions and excerpts from the minutes of
       that meeting. The Council was also provided with copies of the memorandum dated 12/27/99 from the Assistant
       Director of Public Works regarding vehicle speed reduction measures on Yosemite Drive.

       Councilmember Kirk announced that during the 2/7/00 neighborhood meeting, additional traffic-calming
       suggestions were presented. Assistant Director of Public Works Hislop reported that bulbing, striping and traffic
       circles were suggested for Yosemite Drive between SHR 32 and California Park Drive, with the outcome being a
       general consensus to close the street and install undulations. Councilmember Kirk added that the street closure
       might be located at the ponds, some residents were still interested in traffic circles, and it was difficult to consider


                                                              7
                                                   February 15, 2000


       traffic calming measures for the entire street due to different traffic problems and street/intersection configurations
       along various segments.

       This evening the Council received a letter dated 2/8/00 from Eunice & Eugene McCutcheon, 6 Palomar Lane,
       indicating that they had observed no traffic problems on Yosemite and that the traffic measures approved by
       Council on 1/4/00 were unnecessary. Don Chambers, 1246 Yosemite Drive, pointed out that coming from SHR 32,
       going north on Bruce Road and then California Park Drive to reach the golf course, was shorter than traveling on
       Yosemite Drive, and he recommended closing Yosemite in one direction and adding speed bumps. Mayor
       Bertagna suggested a traffic count on Yosemite between SHR 32 and Idyllwild. Phil Larios, 363 Brookside Drive,
       was in favor of any measures to reduce speed such as undulations or white stripes on the sides of Yosemite, but
       did not recommend closure without further notice to residents. Russell Mills recommended consideration of traffic
       circles and bulbing, but first considering the needs of bicyclists and pedestrians. Chris Rigopoulos, 1020
       Yosemite Drive, thought it would be worth trying traffic circles or speed undulations. Ross White, 1040 Yosemite
       Drive, supported traffic circles but thought traffic islands or bulbing would reduce traffic speed.

       Mayor Bertagna questioned if cones or other temporary measures could be placed on the street to determine the
       effectiveness of any traffic calming measures before they were permanently installed. Councilmember Herbert
       moved to rescind the Council’s prior action for traffic controls on Yosemite Drive, and approval of painting
       striping on both sides of the street for its entire distance. Councilmember Keene seconded the motion with an
       amendment for staff to come back with cost estimates for other traffic calming measures along with an analysis
       of their impact on the neighborhood. The motion was seconded and carried with Councilmembers Herbert, Keene,
       Kirk, Lange and Bertagna voting aye, and Councilmembers Guzzetti and Jarvis voting no.

       Some members of the Council also recommended scheduling a Saturday neighborhood meeting and to chalk and
       cone on the street various traffic calming measures that had been discussed.




4.3.   APPOINTMENT TO FILL VACANCY ON PARKING PLACE COMMISSION.

       At its 2/1/00 meeting, the Council declared a vacancy on the Parking Place Commission due to the resignation of
       Rick Tofanelli. By memorandum dated 1/27/00, the City Clerk forwarded copies of applications currently on file
       in her office from individuals interested in being considered for appointment. The term of this vacancy expired
       on 1/1/01.

       Councilmember Kirk nominated William Dudman, and Councilmember Jarvis nominated Mark Sweany. Out of the
       nominations, the City Clerk first drew the name of William Dudman, and he was appointed to the Parking Place

       Guzzetti and Jarvis voting no.

4.4.   FUTURE MEETINGS.

       A. First Meeting in July. The City Manager reported that at its 2/1/00 meeting, because the Council could not
          meet on the 7/4/00 holiday, the Council tentatively agreed to schedule its first meeting in July on 7/5/00 at
          4:00 p.m., with the only agenda item to be final adoption of the 2000-01 budget (the Charter requires final
          adoption of the budget at the Council's first regular meeting in July). Since some Councilmembers were
          uncertain if they could attend on that date/time, they asked for further consideration at this evening's
          meeting. Following discussion, the Council agreed to meet on 7/5/00 at 4:00 p.m.

       B. City Noise Ordinance. Councilmember Jarvis reported that at its 2/8/00 meeting, the Internal Affairs
          Committee considered this matter and agreed to forward it to the full Council for consideration. She asked
          the Council to determine whether it wished to schedule a separate meeting to consider amendments to the
          noise ordinance, or whether it should be included on Council’s regular agenda on 3/7/00, at which time the
          Internal Affairs Committee report would be considered. Following discussion, the Council agreed to meet


                                                              8
                                                February 15, 2000


           on 4/13/00 from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m.

       C. CSUC Master Plan. The City Manager reported that Greg Francis, CSUC Facilities Planning, had inquired as
          to whether the Council would be interested in scheduling a meeting to hear a presentation by their
          consultant, A.C. Martin, who prepared the Campus Master Plan (approximately 1 ½ hours). Following
          discussion, the Council agreed to meet on 3/17/00 from 11:00 a.m. to approximately 1:00 p.m., including lunch.

       and buildings. He had contacted the County, and it was partially cleaned, but still remained an eyesore. He

       ON 2/7/00
       Councilmember Keene reviewed a memorandum dated 2/11/00 reporting on the Finance Committee meeting held on 2/7/00,
       at which time the matters listed below were considered. All Committee members were present: Councilmembers Herbert,
       Lange, and Keene, Chair.
       Consent Agenda
       A. (Agency action required)
          Approval of Request from DiDuca Bros., Inc. for a Loan from the Low and Moderate Income Housing Fund (LMIHF)
          to Develop an Affordable Single Family Subdivision. The Committee recommended (3-0) approval of the request from
          Di Duca Bros., Inc. for a $282,000 loan from the Agency’s Low and Moderate Income Housing Fund, subject to the
          conditions recommended by the Housing Officer in his memorandum of 1/27/00.

           This evening the Council received a letter dated 3/7/00 from Joe DiDuca withdrawing his request for Agency funding
           assistance for this low/moderate income housing project on Floral Avenue, indicating that the project was no longer
           economically feasible due to excessive costs for utility improvements.

       Regular Agenda
       B. (Council action required)
          Review of 1998-99 Fiscal Year Audit Reports for the City of Chico and the Chico Redevelopment Agency. The
          Committee recommended (3-0) that the Council accept the 1998-99 Fiscal Year Audit Reports for the City of Chico, the
          Chico Redevelopment Agency, the Chico Public Financing Authority, the Single Audit Reports, and the
          Transportation Development Act Funds Financial Report.

           Councilmember Herbert moved acceptance of the audit reports. The motion was seconded and unanimously carried.

       C. (Council action required)
          Consideration of Additional Allocation of HOME Investment Partnership Program (HOME) Funds to the Tenant Based
          Rental Assistance Program. The Committee (3-0) recommended approval of an additional allocation of $50,000 from
          the HOME fund to the Tenant Based Rental Assistance Program in order to allow it to operate through 6/30/00.

           APPROVAL OF BUDGET MODIFICATION ALLOCATING $50,000 FROM FEDERAL HOME UNALLOCATED
           FUNDS TO THE TENANT BASED RENTAL ASSISTANCE PROGRAM. Councilmember Herbert moved approval of
           the Budget Modification. The motion was seconded and unanimously carried.

       D. (No action required — this was presented to the Agency on 2/15/00)
          Presentation Regarding Chico Senator Theatre Business Plan. Since no action was being requested on the part of the
          City at this time, the Committee (3-0) directed staff to include this matter on the City Council’s Redevelopment Agency
          agenda of 2/15/00 for a presentation only.

       E. (Council action required)
          Consideration of Appeal Fee Reduction or Waiver. The Committee (3-0) recommended against implementation of an
          appeal fee waiver process.

           Councilmember Jarvis stated that she was still interested in implementing some process to assist anyone who was
           unable to pay the filing fee. Council and staff discussed the ability of members of the Council to call up the record on
           an appeal or considering a request for a fee waiver, a means of notifying prospective appellants of the procedures, and
           modifying the appeal form.



           Following discussion, Councilmember Keene moved approval of implementing a fee waiver process, revising the
           appeals form so appellants could indicate if paying the fee would be a financial hardship, and allowing staff to make
           the determination regarding the financial hardship. Councilmember Kirk seconded the motion with an amendment to
           apply the low income guidelines used for the Utility Users Tax as set forth in the Municipal Code. The motion and


March 7, 2000                                          Redevelopment Agency                                              Page 2
            amendment were then unanimously carried.

       F.   (No Council action required)
            Review of 2000-2001 Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and HOME Investment Partnership (HOME)
            Program Citizen Participation Schedule. The Committee took no action since this item was presented for information
            only at this time.

       Councilmember Jarvis then moved to accept the report and remaining recommendations of the Finance Committee. The
       motion was seconded and unanimously carried.

5.     ITEMS ADDED AFTER POSTING OF THE AGENDA. None.

6.     ADJOURNMENT. The meeting was adjourned at 7:55 p.m. to a City Council meeting.

1.     CALL TO ORDER. The Mayor called the meeting to order at 7:55 p.m.

1.1.   Roll Call. Present - Mayor Bertagna and Councilmembers Guzzetti, Herbert, Jarvis, Keene, Kirk and Lange. Absent - none.

       City staff - City Manager Lando, City Attorney Frank, Assistant City Manager Dunlap, City Clerk Evans, Finance Director

2.     CONSENT AGENDA

2.1.   ORDINANCE OF CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CHICO AMENDING THE FRANCHISE FOR THE EXCLUSIVE USE
       OF A PORTION OF CITY STREETS, SIDEWALKS OR OTHER CITY PROPERTY - DOWNTOWN CHICO BUSINESS
       ASSOCIATION (DCBA) -- AMENDMENT NO. 8 -- INTRODUCTORY READING

       By memorandum dated 2/7/00, the Director of Public Works reports on a request from the Downtown Chico Business
       Association to amend its original franchise agreement adopted 4/5/94. This ordinance will amend Section D, entitled “Days
       and Times,” of the franchise by eliminating the “Spring Fling” event, by changing the name of the “Fall Harvest Faire” to
       the “Harvest Sidewalk Sale” and adding Friday to that event, and by eliminating the word “Farmers” from the Thursday
       Night Markets. All other provisions of the franchise remain unchanged. A public hearing has been scheduled for 3/21/00,
       a notice of which will be published and mailed to all franchisees and permittees who are authorized by the City to sell food
       and beverages from City streets and sidewalks. The Director of Public Works recommends adoption of the ordinance.

2.2.   RESOLUTION NO. 98 99-00 -- RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CHICO AMENDING CHAPTER
       15R.40, ENTITLED “SEWER DISCHARGE REQUIREMENTS,” OF TITLE 15R, ENTITLED “WATER AND SEWERS,” OF
       THE CHICO MUNICIPAL CODE

       By memorandum dated 2/4/00, the Director of Public Works reports that this resolution will amend Sections 15R.40.010 A
       and B of the Chico Municipal Code by changing the phrase, “industrial wastewater permit holders,” to “industrial
       wastewater dischargers.” Since adoption of the resolution which set forth local limits for pollutants to be used in the City
       of Chico Industrial Waste Pretreatment Program in December, 1998, it has been determined that the phrase “permit holders”
       implies that the local limits apply only to those industries having a permit, and since federal regulations do not exempt
       anyone for lack of a permit, clarification was needed. This resolution will change the phrases in 15R.40.010 A and B from
       “industrial wastewater permit holders,” to “industrial wastewater dischargers.” All other provisions of CMC §15R.40.010
       remain unchanged. The Director of Public Works recommends adoption of the resolution.

2.3.   RESOLUTION NO. 99 99-00 -- RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CHICO AMENDING THE CITY’S
       FEE SCHEDULE (AMENDMENT NO. 243 - AIRPORT FEES)


March 7, 2000                                           City Council                                                     Page 3
       By memorandum dated 2/18/00, Management Analyst Herman submits the Airport Commission’s recommendation that the
       City of Chico Fee Schedule-Airport Fees be amended to eliminate the maximum $7.50 per acre per year and the minimum
       $100 per year lease fee for the use of City property within the Chico Municipal Airport clear zones. This revision will
       provide for lease rental fees to be based on the fair market lease value through a competitive bid process as recommended
       by the Airport Commission at its 11/30/99 meeting. The Airport Commission recommends adoption of the resolution.

2.4.   RESOLUTION NO. 100 99-00 -- RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CHICO AUTHORIZING
       DESTRUCTION OF CERTAIN CITY RECORDS PURSUANT TO GOVERNMENT CODE SECTION 34090

       This resolution will authorize the destruction of certain City records in the City Clerk’s Office that are over two years old
       and are listed on Exhibit A attached thereto. The City Attorney has consented to the destruction of the records. The City
       Clerk recommends adoption of the resolution.

2.5.   RESOLUTION NO. 101 99-00 -- RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CHICO LEVYING ASSESSMENT
       INSTALLMENTS IN LIEU OF THE PAYMENT OF SEWER SYSTEM CONNECTION FEES INCIDENT TO THE
       CONNECTION OF PREMISES TO THE CITY SEWER SYSTEM - 2925 Godman Ave. / A.P. NO 007-220-013

       By memorandum dated 2/1/00, the Director of Public Works reports that in accordance with a petition from the property
       owner, Eric R. & Liane H. Christensen, this resolution will authorize sewer assessments to be collected on the tax roll as
       set forth in the Director of Public Works’ report dated 2/1/00 attached to the resolution. These assessments are in lieu of
       payment of the sewer system connection fees which would ordinarily be due and payable at the time of connecting the
       premises to the City’s sewer system. This property is the last of a group of properties tributary to the proposed Lassen
       Avenue sewer trunk line for which petitions were accepted in 1998 for payment of Water Pollution Control Plant (WPCP)
       Capacity Fees via Assessment In Lieu. The Director of Public Works recommends adoption of the resolution.

2.6.   RESOLUTION NO. 102 99-00 -- RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CHICO LEVYING ASSESSMENT
       INSTALLMENTS IN LIEU OF THE PAYMENT OF SEWER SYSTEM CONNECTION FEES INCIDENT TO THE
       CONNECTION OF PREMISES TO THE CITY SEWER SYSTEM - 2059 HOOKER OAK AVENUE / A.P. NO. 045-412-009

       owner, Carol Myers, this resolution will authorize sewer assessments to be collected on the tax roll as set forth in the
       Director of Public Works’ report dated 1/11/00 attached to the resolution. These assessments are in lieu of payment of the
       sewer system connection fees which would ordinarily be due and payable at the time of connecting the premises to the
       City’s sewer system. The Director of Public Works recommends adoption of the resolution.

2.7.   RESOLUTION NO. 103 99-00 -- RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CHICO CONSENTING TO THE
       INCLUSION OF A PART OF THE CITY OF CHICO IN BUTTE COUNTY SERVICE AREA NUMBER 24 CHICO MUD
       CREEK DRAINAGE

       By memorandum dated 2/17/00, the Community Development Assistant reports that the City approval of the Sunwood
       Estates Subdivision required the annexation of this project to County Service Area No. 24 (Chico Mud Creek Drainage)
       for the maintenance of storm drainage facilities. This 40-lot single-family residential subdivision is located on the east side
       of Ceanothus Avenue, 1,980 feet north of East Avenue. Prior to annexation of properties within the City limits to a County
       Service Area, the City Council must consent to such annexation. The Community Development Assistant recommends
       adoption of the resolution.


2.8.   RESOLUTION NO. 104 99-00 -- RESOLUTION OF INTENTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CHICO TO
       ABANDON AND VACATE PUBLIC UTILITY EASEMENT PURSUANT TO THE PUBLIC STREETS, HIGHWAYS, AND
       SERVICE EASEMENTS VACATION LAW (LOT 15, ARROYO GREENS SUBDIVISION, ASSESSOR'S PARCEL NO. 011-

       Corporation, has petitioned the City of Chico to abandon the public utility easement on Lot 15 of the Arroyo Greens
       Subdivision (located on Via Casita Place off of Canyon Oaks Terrace, adjacent to the Canyon Oaks Golf Course) in
       conjunction with a boundary line modification between Lots 14 and 15. A new public utility easement will be dedicated
       to the City to replace the abandoned easement. The abandonment of the public utility easement will be recorded after the


March 7, 2000                                            City Council                                                       Page 4
       new easement is dedicated to the City. The Director of Public Works recommends adoption of the resolution which will
       schedule a public hearing for 4/4/00.

2.9.   RESOLUTION NO. 105 99-00 -- RESOLUTION OF INTENTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CHICO TO
       ABANDON AND VACATE A PORTION OF A PUBLIC UTILITY EASEMENT PURSUANT TO THE PUBLIC STREETS,
       HIGHWAYS, AND SERVICE EASEMENTS VACATION LAW (855 BRUCE ROAD, ASSESSOR'S PARCEL NO. 011-160-
       014)

       By memorandum dated 2/4/00, the Director of Public Works reports that Windchime of Chico, on behalf of the property
       owner, Enloe Medical Center, has petitioned the City to abandon a portion of the 20-foot-wide public utility easement at
       855 Bruce Road, for realignment of the existing sanitary sewer line to allow for future development of the property. The
       abandonment of the public utility easement will be recorded after the realigned easement is dedicated to the City. The
       Director of Public Works recommends adoption of the resolution which will schedule a public hearing for 4/4/00.

2.10. MINUTE ORDER NO. 5-00 -- AUTHORIZATION FOR CITY MANAGER TO EXECUTE A DEED GRANTING AN
      EASEMENT FOR PUBLIC VEHICULAR AND PEDESTRIAN ACCESS ON BRUCE ROAD, NEAR LAKEWEST DRIVE,
      ASSESSOR'S PARCEL NO. 011-480-001

       Subdivisions typically require relinquishment of abutter's rights to the City to restrict direct access to major collector or
       arterial streets. However, once design of a development project is complete and the access needs are identified, the
       property owner may request access rights from the City. In order to allow vehicular and pedestrian access and circulation
       for future development of Assessor's Parcel No. 011-480-001, the owners, Guillon, Inc. and Doug and Debbie Guillon, have
       requested a public access easement across a portion of the parcel at the northeast corner of Bruce Road and Lakewest
       Drive which currently has restrictions. The Community Development Director recommends approval of the minute order.

2.11. MINUTE ORDER NO. 6-00 -- AUTHORIZATION FOR CITY MANAGER TO EXECUTE ASSIGNMENT OF DEFERRED
      COMPENSATION ADMINISTRATION AGREEMENT

       By Minute Order 2-95, the City Council authorized the City Manager to execute agreements with Great Western Bank for
       investment and administrative services for the City’s deferred compensation program. Subsequent to that agreement,
       Washington Mutual, successor in interest to Great Western, requested that the City execute an assignment which would
       assign the general administrative duties and responsibilities to National Deferred Compensation. National Deferred has
       been in existence since 1973 and has been working with the City’s plan in various degrees since 1995. This minute order
       would formalize the assignment of the Deferred Compensation Administration Agreement and authorize the City Manager
       to execute any future amendments or documents required in connection with the deferred compensation administration
       agreement with plan providers. The Assistant City Manager recommends approval of the minute order.

4.     REGULAR AGENDA.

4.4.   CONSIDERATION OF AWARD OF CONTRACT FOR TWO CLEAN-UP EVENTS IN BIDWELL PARK

       Councilmember Keene Jarvis moved that the Council take this item out of order as listed on the agenda and that it adopt
       a motion to review the action taken by the Bidwell Park & Playground Commission relating to the park clean-up events as
       described in the Park Director’s memorandum. The motion was seconded and unanimously carried.

       Park Director Beardsley reviewed his memorandum dated 2/29/00 in which he reported that the Bidwell Park and Playground
       Commission recommended an award of contract for two public awareness and Bidwell Park clean-up events in 2000 to the
       Butte Environmental Council. The Park Director had recommended an award to California State University, Chico, College
       of Business, Students in Free Enterprise (SIFE) as being the lowest responsible bidder. Because of the time required to
       solicit volunteers, staff had requested that the matter be considered at this meeting.

       Kelly Meagher, Honeyrun Road, Helen Ost, 1255 East Lindo Avenue, Karen Laslo, 468 East Sacramento Avenue, Lin
       Jensen, 468 East Sacramento Avenue, Nora Burnham, 3385 Clark Road, Butte Valley, Kimberly King, Park Commission
       member, Tom Barrett, Park Commission member, and Barbara Kopicki, Park Commission member, recommended awarding
       the contract to BEC. Reuben Williams, 708 ½ Pomona Avenue, John Gillander, Caryn Jones, 5 Deborah Terrace, Walter
       Cook, 42 Northwood Commons, Richard Elsom, CSUC Associated Students President, Robert Best, 624 Nord Avenue #35,
       Curt DeBerg, CSUC Faculty Advisor, and Larry Wahl, 312 Mansion Avenue, recommended awarding the contract to SIFE.
       Received this evening was a letter dated 3/4/00 from Mike & Dana Smith requesting that the contract be awarded to BEC.

       Following Council discussion, Councilmember Jarvis moved that the contract be awarded to SIFE, that the next Request
       for Proposals list specific locations and a request for an estimate of the quantity of debris bidders expected to be picked
       up, and that this year’s event remain on the 4/22/00 bid date. Councilmember Kirk seconded the motion with an amendment
       because the RFP specified that dates and locations could be changed by the Park Director. Councilmember Jarvis
       concurred, and added to her motion that following a review by the Park Director he submit a written memorandum to the
       Council. The motion and amendment were unanimously carried.

       No one spoke from the audience and the Mayor declared the hearing closed.

       LOCATED IN THE INCORPORATED TERRITORY OF THE CITY OF CHICO, COUNTY OF BUTTE, STATE OF
       CALIFORNIA - REZONE NO. 99-9 (CITY OF CHICO) — FINAL READING AND ADOPTION. After reading the title,

3.2.   HEARING ON CHANGES AND MODIFICATIONS TO EASTWOOD ASSESSMENT DISTRICT

       Assistant City Manager Dunlap reported that at its 2/15/00 meeting, the City Council adopted a Resolution of Intention
       scheduling a public hearing at tonight’s meeting to consider modifications and changes to the Eastwood Assessment
       District. By memorandum dated 2/28/00, she provided background on the proposal to modify the description of work for
       the Eastwood Assessment District and reported on the 2/9/00 meeting with City staff and the property owners in the
       affected area. The proposed modifications would allow the use of the remaining construction funds for the installation of
       utilities generally in the area of Jan Court, Raley Boulevard, Bruce Road and Forest Avenue. She recommended adoption
       of the resolution and approval of the supplemental appropriation listed below.

       Assistant City Manager Dunlap further reported that Mr. & Mrs. Rakesh Joshi intended to develop property at the corner
       of Bruce Road & the Skyway and had asked the City to use the remaining construction funds for the utilities. Mr. & Mrs.
       William Holdener, representing Eastwood Properties, which owned 10 parcels within the district, had indicated an interest
       in having the remaining bond funds from the district distributed to the property owners.

       The City Manager, Assistant City Manager and Director of Public Works answered questions from the Council relating
       to the formation of the Eastwood Assessment District, the refunding of the district, and the Eastwood Subdivision. The
       City Manager recommended Council approval of the resolution and supplemental appropriation subject to his approving
       a contribution agreement and the City facilitating a split of the two larger parcels owned by Eastwood Properties on the
       Skyway.

       David Oster of Jones Hall, bond counsel, explained the law and the process under which the assessment district was
       formed, and the process for utilizing the remaining funds for the public utilities.

       Jeanine Holdener, 975 Hillview Drive, Dixon, representing Eastwood Properties, reviewed a letter that she handed to the
       Council this evening. It was her understanding that utilities were not installed initially because the ultimate development
       of the property was not known at the time, that Mr. Joshi purchased the property at a reduced rate because of the absence
       of utilities, that Eastwood Properties should receive some compensation for paying into the district, and that she currently
       had another parcel in escrow that this situation would affect.

       Councilmember Guzzetti questioned if the City might reimburse all the current owners and allow them to resolve the
       situation, rather than benefitting only certain properties. The City Manager indicated that he didn’t believe the City had
       a responsibility, but without a resolution of the matter he would expect that a legal action would be filed.




       Rakesh Joshi, 9640 Staci Drive, Live Oak, stated that he was not aware of the situation relating to utilities when he acquired
       the property, that he was willing to pay his fair share if they were installed, and that other property owners in the district
       were in agreement with having the utilities installed with the exception of Eastwood Properties. Mrs. Holdener noted that
       the prospective owner of the property in escrow was willing to pay the cost of installing his own utilities.

       No one else spoke from the audience and the Mayor declared the hearing closed.

       RESOLUTION NO. 107 99-00 -- RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CHICO ORDERING CHANGES

       and carried by the following vote: AYES: Councilmembers Guzzetti, Herbert, Jarvis, Keene, Kirk, Lange and Bertagna.
       NOES: None. ABSENT: None.

3.3.   HEARING ON ANNEXATION OF BRYANT AVENUE ANNEXATION DISTRICT NO. 7

       Community Development Assistant Sellers reviewed his memorandum dated 2/14/00 regarding the annexation of 29 parcels,
       totaling 25.208 acres, located on Bryant Avenue, Filbert Avenue and Vallombrosa Avenue. The area was designated as
       low density residential in the General Plan and prezoned R-1 Single Family Residential. Twenty-seven of the parcels were
       developed with existing single family residences, one with a Cal Water well and one with a church parking area. It was
       proposed to further subdivide two of the parcels to create additional lots for single family residences. This annexation was
       initiated at the request of the owner of one of the parcels to facilitate sanitary sewer connection for an existing single family
       residence, and adjacent property owners had requested that their properties be included in the annexation.

       He further reported that since this inhabited (more than 11 registered voters) annexation included properties which did not
       request annexation, the City Council must hold a hearing to receive protests to annexation. Based on the size of the
       protest, the Council must take one of the following actions: (1) Terminate the annexation if a majority protest was filed by
       50% or more of the registered voters. (2) Approve the annexation subject to confirmation at an election if the protest
       represented more than 25% of the assessed value of land or at least 25% but less than 50% of the registered voters in the
       area proposed for annexation. (3) Approve the annexation if the protest represented less than 25% of the assessed value
       of land and less than 25% of the registered voters in the area proposed for annexation. In the absence of a valid protest,
       he recommended adoption of the resolution.

       No one spoke from the audience, no written protests were received, and the Mayor declared the hearing closed.

       Bertagna. NOES: None. ABSENT: None.

3.4.   HEARING ON ANNEXATION OF CAMEO DRIVE ANNEXATION DISTRICT NO. 2

       Community Development Assistant Sellers reviewed his memorandum dated 2/14/00 regarding the annexation of 57 parcels,
       totaling 31.246 acres, located on Burnap Avenue, Cohasset Road, Cameo Drive and Coral Circle. The area was designated
       as low density residential, medium density residential, high density residential, community commercial and public in the
       General Plan. The area had been prezoned consistent with the General Plan designations. Fifteen of the parcels were
       developed with single family residences, four contained churches and related facilities, one was developed with a mini-
       storage complex, 33 contained a total of 142 multiple family residential units, two contained small office complexes, one was
       used as a county fire station and one was vacant. This annexation was initiated at the request of the owners of several
       of the parcels to facilitate sanitary sewer connection.

       He further reported that since this inhabited (more than 11 registered voters) annexation included properties which did not
       request annexation, the City Council must hold a hearing to receive protests to annexation. Based on the size of the
       protest, the Council must take one of the following actions: (1) Terminate the annexation if a majority protest was filed by
       50% or more of the registered voters. (2) Approve the annexation subject to confirmation at an election if the protest
       represented more than 25% of the assessed value of land or at least 25% but less than 50% of the registered voters in the
       area proposed for annexation. (3) Approve the annexation if the protest represented less than 25% of the assessed value
       of land and less than 25% of the registered voters in the area proposed for annexation. In the absence of a valid protest,
       he recommended adoption of the resolution.

       The Community Development Assistant noted that letters dated 3/3/00 were received from Olga Sanchez, 3007 Cohasset
       Road, and Antonio and Sharon Sanchez, 2981 Cohasset Road, indicating that they wanted their property to stay “zoned
       in the County”, and that they would be unable to attend tonight’s meeting. He indicated that the Sanchezes appeared to
       be objecting to annexation, but, as worded in their letters, they were “against the rezoning”. This evening the Council
       received a letter from Ynez & Amelia Castillo, 2625 Burnap Avenue, and Robert Eberhardt, 2621 Burnap Avenue, protesting


March 7, 2000                                             City Council                                                        Page 8

       developed with offices and one was improved with a single family residence. This annexation was initiated at the request
       of the owner of one of the parcels to facilitate sanitary sewer connection for a new office complex.
       As this uninhabited (fewer than 12 registered voters) annexation included properties which did not request annexation,

         This evening the Council received a letter dated 2/28/00 from Captain Ray Yant of the Salvation Army requesting that
         the organization be exempted (from the provision in the proposed Code amendment which would limit sale of cars by
         non-profits on private property to six months out of the year), and that it be allowed to sell its vehicles Monday
         through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. during regular business hours throughout the year.



         Mayor Bertagna announced that he had a potential conflict of interest because the property on which his business
         was located on Mangrove Avenue was shared by a non-profit organization, and he would therefore abstain from
         voting or discussion on this item. Vice Mayor Herbert then presided over this portion of the meeting.

         Larry Wahl, Salvation Army Advisory Board, reported that they only needed permission to sell from their West 8th &
         Salem Streets lot. Captain Ray Yant of the Salvation Army added that sale hours would only be Monday through
         Friday during regular business hours.

         In response to Council questions, the City Attorney recommended that he and the Planning Director review
         appropriate zones for the sale of donated cars by non-profit organizations, and report back to the Council.
         Councilmember Keene moved approval of the City Attorney’s recommendation, with a report to be provided to the
         Council at its first meeting in April. The motion was seconded and carried with Mayor Bertagna abstaining.

         Mayor Bertagna presided over the remainder of the meeting. Councilmember Keene moved that the Council continue
         this evening’s meeting past 11:00 p.m. The motion was seconded and unanimously carried.

            Regular Agenda
            (Mayor Bertagna arrived at the beginning of the Committee’s Regular Agenda)

       D. (No Council action required at this time — a meeting has been scheduled for 4/13/00 for Council consideration of this
          matter)
          Consideration of Amendments to the City’s Noise Ordinance. The Committee recommended (2-1, Bertagna voting no):
          (1) that the warning period before a noise violation citation was issued be 12 hours; and (2) that the remainder of the
          issues concerning amendments to the noise ordinance, including the subjective test (Section 9.38.052) vs. the objective
          test (noise meters) for corroboration of a complaint, and determination of noise level standards, be forwarded to the
          full Council for consideration. The City Attorney indicated he would revise the proposed draft ordinance to require
          a warning before issuance of a complaint in all instances.

       E. (No Council action required)
          Consideration of Traffic Concerns on Bar Triangle Street. The Committee recommended (3-0) that no changes be made
          to Bar Triangle Street, as recommended by staff.

       F.   (Council action required)
            Consideration of Indemnity Policy for New Development. The Committee recommended (3-0) that the City Attorney
            be directed to draft implementing language for indemnification agreements with developers as part of the process of
            updating Titles 18 and 19 of the Chico Municipal Code.

            John Gillander didn’t believe that an ordinance was necessary and that existing State law provisions were sufficient
            to protect the City.

            Following discussion, Councilmember Jarvis moved approval of the Committee’s recommendation. The motion was
            seconded and carried with Councilmembers Guzzetti, Jarvis, Kirk, Lange and Bertagna voting aye, and Councilmembers
            Herbert and Keene voting no.

       G. (Council action required)
          Consideration of Remedies for Violations of Subdivision Conditions, Including Mitigation Measures. The Committee
          recommended (3-0) that the City Attorney be directed to implement the seven remedies for subdivision violations as
          set forth in his 2/1/00 memorandum, as well as the “Notice of Land Use Approval” mentioned today, in connection
          with the update of Title 18 of the Chico Municipal Code.

            Councilmember Jarvis reported that the seven proposed modifications to the current development process included
            (1) addition of owner’s statement, (2) coordination of annexation process with subdivision process, (3) signed
            acceptance of subdivision conditions, (4) use of performance bonds to secure conditions, (5) recordation of
            improvement agreements, (6) violations of conditions as violations of Chico Municipal Code, and (7) use of civil
            remedies.

            Following discussion, Councilmember Kirk moved approval of the Committee’s recommendation, including the Notice
            of Land Use Approval that could be included in the title report on the land. The motion was seconded and
            unanimously carried.

            Councilmember Keene moved to accept the report and remaining recommendations of the Committee. The motion was
            seconded and unanimously carried.

4.3.   PRESENTATION BY REGIONAL WATER QUALITY CONTROL BOARD REGARDING NITRATES

       The Regional Water Quality Control Board (RWQCB) made a request to discuss the status of nitrates in the urban area with
       the City Council. By letter dated 2/28/00, the RWQCB staff outlined the issues to be addressed.

       Ronald Dykstra, staff engineer with the Central Valley Region of the California Regional Water Quality Control Board
       (RWQCB), Redding, provided historical background information on the Prohibition Order issued in 1990 for properties in
       the Chico Urban Area to discontinue use of septic tanks with some exceptions for lower-density parcels. He added that
       while the majority of parcels affected at the time the Order was issued were located in the unincorporated area, at this time
       the majority were now located in the City due to annexation.


March 7, 2000                                           City Council                                                      Page 12
       Jim Pedri, Assistant Executive Officer, Shasta Cascade Watershed, reported that the Legislature and Governor were looking
       for some action on the part of the RWQCB to enforce the Order, that they were attempting to reach some agreement with
       the County on a monitoring program that would allow some parcels to remain on septic tanks but have them subject to
       an ongoing groundwater monitoring program, that the RWQCB would be meeting in Chico in June and would hope to have
       at least a Memorandum of Understanding or some commitment soon, and that the City’s role was important because it had
       the Water Pollution Control Plant.

4.1.   CALIFORNIA STATE UNIVERSITY, CHICO, MASTER PLAN 2000.

       City Manager Lando reported that representatives from the University would give a presentation on the new
       Master Plan process and issues to the City Council. Planning Commission members had also been invited to
       attend. In attendance to represent the University were Richard Thompson of A.C. Martin Partners, Consultant,
       along with Greg Francis, Facilities Planning, and Dennis Graham, Vice President for Business & Finance.

       Mr. Thompson reviewed the process for developing a new Master Plan, the existing layout of buildings and
       open space, the layout of campuses in other communities, the progression of buildings and facilities placed on
       the campus over the years, the history of the University and the City that would be considered in the new plan,
       the edges that would define the boundaries of the campus, using Big Chico Creek as a spine for the campus,
       the varied architectural styles and landscaping now existing on the campus, and planning for the academic,
       physical education and housing needs of students. He then reviewed the 1990 Master Plan and those portions
       of it that had or had not been accomplished up to this time. He also explained what facilities were eligible for
       State funding and those that were not. They were preparing a list of needs and issues that would be discussed
       with the campus and community in the coming months.

       Mr. Thompson and Mr. Graham answered questions from the Council, Planning Commission, City staff and
       members of the audience regarding the Master Plan.

       Master Plan, and Mr. Graham reported on a Chamber of Commerce Eggs & Issues program regarding the Master
       Plan. Various Councilmembers asked that the Council be kept advised of these and any other upcoming

2.     CONSENT AGENDA.

2.1.   ORDINANCE OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CHICO AMENDING THE CHICO MUNICIPAL CODE TO
       MAKE A TECHNICAL CORRECTION TO THE DEFINITION OF “NUISANCE” - INTRODUCTORY READING


March 21, 2000                                        City Council                                              Page 1
       By memorandum dated 3/3/00, the City Attorney reports that this ordinance will amend the Municipal Code by
       deleting a reference to couches from the definition of “nuisance” as recommended by the Internal Affairs
       Committee. It adds a modified definition of “nuisance” as “Dilapidated furniture in yards or on unenclosed
       porches”. The City Attorney recommends adoption of the ordinance.

2.2.   RESOLUTION NO. 114 99-00 -- RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CHICO AMENDING
       CHAPTER 2R.04, ENTITLED "ADMINISTRATION," OF THE CHICO MUNICIPAL CODE BY ADDING THERETO
       A NEW SECTION 2R.04.035, ENTITLED "CITY MANAGER AUTHORIZED TO EXECUTE DEEDS CONVEYING
       ACCESS EASEMENTS TO CITY STREETS TO REPLACE DEDICATED ABUTTER'S RIGHTS"

       By memorandum dated 3/7/00, the Community Development Director reports that subdivisions typically require
       relinquishment of abutter’s rights to the City to restrict direct access to major collector or arterial streets.
       However, once the design of a development project is complete and the specific access needs are identified, the
       property owner may request access rights from the City. In the past this has been handled through an
       abandonment of the abutter’s rights, but it has subsequently been determined that deeding access rights to the
       property owner is the appropriate process. Through this mechanism, the City grants an easement across that
       portion of the property which previously had access restrictions. The proposed resolution would give the City
       Manager authority to sign deeds granting access easements to City streets to replace dedicated abutter's rights
       so that such matters can be handled administratively, without necessitating Council approval each time an
       access easement is requested. The Community Development Director recommends adoption of the resolution.

2.3.   RESOLUTION NO. 115 99-00 -- RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CHICO AUTHORIZING
       THE DESTRUCTION OF CERTAIN CITY RECORDS PURSUANT TO GOVERNMENT CODE SECTION 34090

       By memorandum dated 2/1/00, the Personnel Director requests authorization to destroy obsolete recruitment,
       chronological and purchasing files. Such routine records destruction is allowed pursuant to Government Code
       Section 34090. The records identified for destruction are two or more years old. The City Attorney has consented
       to destruction of the records specified in this resolution. Records to be destroyed will be shredded and recycled.
       The Personnel Director recommends adoption of the resolution.

2.4.   (Removed from the Consent Agenda at the request of Councilmembers Keene and Kirk.)
       RESOLUTION OF INTENTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CHICO TO ORDER FORMATION OF
       A MAINTENANCE DISTRICT PURSUANT TO THE MAINTENANCE DISTRICT ORDINANCE OF 1997 - CITY OF
       CHICO MAINTENANCE DISTRICT NO. 90 (AMBER GROVE/GREENFIELD SUBDIVISION)

       By memorandum dated 3/2/00, the Director of Public Works reports that a resolution of intention to form this
       district was previously adopted by Council at its meeting of 9/21/99. Subsequently, ballots were mailed and
       public hearings were scheduled. At the first public hearing, Council requested that staff conduct a neighborhood
       meeting to address the concerns of some of the residents, and the process to form the district was abandoned.
       A neighborhood meeting was held on 2/23/00, and approximately twelve residents attended. As a result of that
       meeting, modifications were made which resulted in a reduction of the annual assessment from $9.82 per year
       to $3.43 per year per residential parcel. Since these subdivisions were built in the County, and the County Service
       Area (CSA #150) was dissolved upon annexation to the City in 1996, no funding mechanism currently exists for
       the future replacement and annual maintenance and operation of the storm drainage facilities for these
       subdivisions. In accordance with the provisions of Proposition 218 and Chapter 3.81 of the Chico Municipal
       Code, Council is being asked to adopt the above resolution which will direct the City Clerk to schedule two public
       hearings on the proposed district. Prior to the hearings, a revised ballot will be mailed to all property owners to
       allow them to vote on whether they wish to be assessed for the ongoing maintenance and operation of the district
       and the establishment of a reserve fund for replacement of the storm drainage facilities. The Director of Public
       Works recommends adoption of the resolution and that the City Clerk schedule the public hearings.

       By letter dated 3/9/00, Greg Webb of Webb Homes indicates his disagreement with what is currently being
       proposed, and requests that the Council accept the original plan for maintaining the ponds.

2.5.   RESOLUTION NO. 116 99-00 -- RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CHICO INITIATING
       PROCEEDINGS TO ANNEX PROPERTY NOW LOCATED IN THE UNINCORPORATED TERRITORY OF THE
       COUNTY OF BUTTE TO THE INCORPORATED TERRITORY OF THE CITY OF CHICO - EAST 16TH STREET


March 21, 2000                                        City Council                                               Page 2
       ANNEXATION DISTRICT NO. 3

       By memorandum dated 3/7/00, the Community Development Assistant forwards a report on initiation of the
       annexation of 873 East 16th Street. In accordance with adopted LAFCo policy, the City must adopt a resolution
       to initiate the annexation of property to the City. The resolution, upon adoption, will initiate the annexation of the
       properties developed with a single family residence. The Community Development Assistant recommends
       adoption of the resolution.

2.6.   APPROVAL OF MINUTES FOR MEETING HELD ON FEBRUARY 15, 2000

       The Council has been provided with copies of minutes for its meeting held on 2/15/00.

2.7.   ACCEPTANCE OF RESIGNATION OF TODD HALL FROM ARTS COMMISSION

       By letter dated 2/29/00, Todd Hall submits his resignation from the Arts Commission, effective on the date of his
       letter. This resignation will create a vacancy, the term of which expires 1/01/01, and the Council may consider
       making an appointment during the Regular Agenda.

       Councilmember Jarvis moved adoption of each resolution and approval of all other items on the Consent Agenda,
       except item 2.4. The motion was seconded and carried by the following vote: AYES: Councilmembers Herbert,
       Jarvis, Keene, Kirk, Lange and Bertagna. NOES: None. ABSENT: Councilmember Guzzetti.

3.     NOTICED PUBLIC HEARINGS

3.1.   HEARING ON ORDINANCE AMENDING THE DOWNTOWN CHICO BUSINESS ASSOCIATION (DCBA)
       FRANCHISE FOR EXCLUSIVE USE OF CITY STREETS, SIDEWALKS, ETC. TO REVISE EVENTS, AND/OR
       EVENT NAMES/DATES

       The Director of Public Works reviewed his memorandum dated 2/7/00 in which he reported on a request from the
       Downtown Chico Business Association to amend its original franchise agreement adopted 4/5/94. This ordinance
       would amend Section D, entitled “Days and Times,” of the franchise by eliminating the “Spring Fling” event, by
       changing the name of the “Fall Harvest Faire” to the “Harvest Sidewalk Sale” and adding Friday to that event, and
       by eliminating the word “Farmers” from the Thursday Night Markets. All other provisions of the franchise would
       remain unchanged. Notice of this hearing was published and mailed to all franchisees and permittees who were
       authorized by the City to sell food and beverages from City streets and sidewalks. The Director of Public Works
       recommended adoption of the ordinance.

       No one spoke from the audience and the Mayor declared the hearing closed.

       ORDINANCE NO. 2192 --ORDINANCE OF CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CHICO AMENDING THE
       FRANCHISE FOR THE EXCLUSIVE USE OF A PORTION OF CITY STREETS, SIDEWALKS OR OTHER CITY
       PROPERTY - DOWNTOWN CHICO BUSINESS ASSOCIATION (DCBA) -- AMENDMENT NO. 8 -- FINAL
       READING AND ADOPTION. After reading the title, Councilmember Keene moved adoption of the ordinance. The
       motion was seconded and carried by the following vote: AYES: Councilmembers Herbert, Jarvis, Keene, Kirk,
       Lange and Bertagna. NOES: None. ABSENT: Councilmember Guzzetti.

4.     REGULAR AGENDA

4.1.   ITEMS REMOVED FROM THE CONSENT AGENDA

       2.4.   Resolution of Intent to Form Maintenance Dist. No. 90 (Amber Grove/Greenfield Subdivision). The Council
              discussed options on the amount of the assessments based on the plan developed in the County and the
              plan that resulted from the neighborhood meeting.

              Greg Webb urged the Council to adopt the original assessment based on the plan developed in the County,
              noting that he had to consider future homeowners that would be residing in the subdivision.



March 21, 2000                                         City Council                                                 Page 3
             Following discussion, Councilmember Keene moved that the Council approve the original assessment of
             $9.82 for submittal to a vote and explain to property owners in greater detail what it covered. The motion
             was seconded and carried with Councilmember Guzzetti being absent.

4.4.   CONSIDERATION OF REQUEST BY RAPE CRISIS INTERVENTION TO PLACE BOWS ON DOWNTOWN
       TREES, LAMP POSTS, ETC.

       (This item was taken out of the order in which it was listed on the agenda.)

       By letter dated 3/7/00, Alys Peck of Rape Crisis Intervention requested permission to place bows around trees,
       lamp posts, etc, along Main and/or Broadway (and/or the park in between these roads) in downtown Chico for the
       month of April, in observance of Sexual Assault Awareness Month and Child Abuse Prevention Month. (Several
       brochures were enclosed with the letter and were on file in the City Clerk’s Office.) It was noted that Ms. Peck
       was advised by City Staff that she should contact the Downtown Chico Business Association to inform them of
       this request to determine if they have any recommendations regarding it.

       Hope Aguirre of Rape Crisis was present to respond to any Council questions.

       Councilmember Jarvis moved approval of the request. The motion was seconded and carried with Councilmember
       Guzzetti being absent.

4.2.   CONSIDERATION OF FIVE-YEAR REVIEW OF THE GENERAL PLAN

       By memorandum dated 3/9/00, Senior Planner Hayes forwarded the Five-Year Review of the General Plan, and
       Planning Commission recommendations regarding staff and public comments received to date. The Five-Year
       Review report was provided to the Council under separate cover. Any proposed amendments made by Council
       at today’s meeting would be submitted for appropriate environmental review and further consideration by the
       Planning Commission.

       The Council was provided with a booklet submitted by Caryn Jones entitled, “The Chico General Plan 5-Year
       Review, The NON-staff Summary of public comments.” This evening the Council received a letter dated 3/16/00
       from Barbara Vlamis, Butte Environmental Council, submitting comments and questions regarding the General
       Plan; letter received 3/16/00 from John Gillander, Chico Committee for Environmental & Economic Balance,
       commenting on the General Plan; letter dated 3/15/00 from Barbara Shockley regarding transportation needs in
       Butte County; and electronic message dated 3/20/00 from Julie Nasr providing comments on conflicts in the
       General Plan in relation to the Humboldt Road Burn Dump.

       Senior Planner Hayes reviewed his 3/15/00 memorandum which was divided into the following categories: A -
       Land Use, Growth, Housing (items 1 thru 9)
       B - Transportation (items 10 thru 17)
       C - Resource Management Areas/Viewsheds (items 18 thru 22)
       D -Creekside Greenways/Trails (items 23 thru 27)
       E - Downtown/Transit Corridor (items 28 thru 30)
       F - Neighborhood Planning (item 31)
       G - Parks & Schools (items 32 thru 34)
       H - Noise (items 35 and 36)

       A.1. Urban Boundary. Amend Urban Development Boundary to incorporate former Alkop Farms property north
       of Eaton Road and west of the Esplanade in the vicinity of Shasta Elementary School.

       A.2. Clustering. Amend Implementing Policy LU-I-68 that requires clustering at higher elevations and define
       “clustering”.

       A.3. Low & Moderate Income Housing. Consider deleting Implementing Policy H-I-11 regarding a study to
       increase from 20% to 30% the Low & Moderate Income Housing Fund set-aside of the RDA tax increment.
       Councilmember Jarvis was interested in increasing the set-aside, Councilmember Kirk suggested leaving the
       policy in case it was needed, and Councilmember Keene thought each case could be considered on an individual


March 21, 2000                                       City Council                                             Page 4
     basis.

     A.4. Floor Area Ratio. Eliminate reference to “floor area ratio” in Land Use Element and substitute with lot
     coverage percentages used in Title 19 (Land Use Regulations).

     A.5. Industrial Areas. Delete Implementing Policy LU-I-44 that requires master plans and infrastructure financing
     programs for newly developing industrial areas, since subdivision procedures cover installation and/or bonding of
     improvements.

     A.6. Emergency Shelters. Delete Implementing Policies H-I-19 and 20 that require establishment of an overlay
     zone for emergency shelters, since Title 19 allows them in several zones with a use permit.

     A.7. Chapman-Mulberry Plan. Initiate proceedings to adopt the Chapman-Mulberry Neighborhood Plan recently
     adopted by the County.

     A.8. Low Density Residential. Consider designating available Very Low Density Residential land to Low Density
     Residential use. The Planning Commission did not recommend.

     A.9. Greenline. Prioritize full implementation of LU-I-2 and 5 by initiating a joint effort with the County to evaluate
     the Greenline and establish a Greenbelt around the remainder of the Urban Area. The Planning Commission did
     not recommend.

     Julie Nasr, 88 Lazy S Lane, recommended deleting the residential designation from the Humboldt Road Burn
     Dump site since testing and remediation of contaminated land would not make it financially feasible for such
     development. Kevin Quinn, 1978 Estates Way, requested a public meeting on the cleanup process and what
     alternatives were being considered.

     ----------------------------------
     The Council recessed for 10 minutes and reconvened at 8:55 p.m.
     ----------------------------------

     Helen Ost, 1255 East Lindo Avenue, urged that a decision be made regarding land use at the Burn Dump. John
     Gillander, Committee for Environmental & Economic Balance, indicated his concern that regulations relating to
     viewsheds, resource overlays, clustering and open space diminished the amount of land available for potential
     housing. Jim Mann, 70 Declaration Drive #101, representing Ildo Rosellini and Tom Fogarty, who owned property
     at the Burn Dump, reported that the residential designation should remain on the property or the density
     transferred elsewhere, that clustering was feasible on some of the property, and a meeting was needed with the
     landowners and the community regarding remediation costs. Barbara Shockley, Sierra Sunrise Village Lodge
     #120, recommended creation of an elected Transportation Board in Butte County to plan for future transportation
     needs.

     Councilmember Keene moved approval of item #1. The motion was seconded and carried with Councilmember
     Guzzetti being absent. Councilmember Jarvis moved to retain Implementing Policies H-I-11, H-I-19 and H-I-20
     set forth in items #3 and #6. The motion was seconded and carried with Councilmember Guzzetti being absent.
     Councilmember Keene moved approval of item #4. The motion was seconded and carried with Councilmember
     Guzzetti being absent. Councilmember Kirk moved approval of item #5. The motion was seconded and carried
     with Councilmember Guzzetti being absent. Councilmember Keene moved approval of item #7 for the portions
     relating to public improvements, and addressing land use upon annexation. The motion was seconded and
     carried with Councilmember Guzzetti being absent. The City Manager indicated that he would secure copies of
     the Chapman-Mulberry Plan for Councilmembers. Councilmember Keene moved that item #8 come back for
     further consideration after a staff analysis was provided to the Council. The motion was seconded and carried
     with Councilmember Guzzetti being absent. Councilmember Keene moved that item #9 be left in place and that
     the current policy be affirmed. The motion was seconded and carried with Councilmember Kirk voting no and
     Councilmember Guzzetti being absent. Councilmember Keene moved that item #2 be continued to a future
     meeting, including discussion on “clustering” and “encourage”. The motion was seconded and carried with
     Councilmember Guzzetti being absent.



March 21, 2000                                        City Council                                                Page 5
     B.10. Circulation Map - Potter Road. Amend map to realign future Potter Road on Oak Valley property between
     Humboldt and SHR 32 east of Bruce Road to avoid Johnson property. After discussing a four-way intersection
     at SHR 32 as recommended by staff and an offset intersection being recommended by Caltrans, the Council
     directed staff to interpret future road alignments for Potter Road as conceptual only with final alignment at the time
     of development, and that staff should discuss further with Caltrans the idea of the offset intersections of Potter
     and Yosemite. The Council favored a four-way intersection.

     B.11. State Highway Improvements. Secure mechanisms for funding State highway facilities that serve the City.

     B.12. Circulation Map - Oversights. Update to correct previous oversights.

     B.13. Bicycle Section. Update to reflect the 1998 Bicycle Master Plan.

     B-14. Traffic Signalization. Clarify Policies T-B-11 and T-I-28 and 30 to state that these policies would not apply
     to local streets that intersect collector or arterial streets unless they met traffic signal warrants.

     B.15. Congestion Management Plan. Delete since these plans were no longer required by the State.

     B.16. Traffic Standard Levels. Change current Level of Service D to Level of Service E. Planning Commission
     did not recommend.

     B.17. Alternative Street Standards. Consider an implementing policy establishing alternative street standards,
     including traffic calming design for new streets. Internal Affairs Committee is considering this item.

     Julie Nasr, 88 Lazy S Lane (#10), recommended that all agencies needed to approve the proposed land uses on
     the Humboldt Dump site and the parcels needed to be cleaned before Potter Road was realigned. Jean Miller,
     435 Redwood (#12 thru #17), noted that the environmental review process had started for widening Manzanita
     Avenue and Bruce Road which she hoped would address the impact of the project on the surrounding area. Helen
     Ost, 155 East Lindo Avenue (#11 and #16), recommended acting on item #11 and changing the standard in item
     #16 or decide that the standard will not be met. Sharon Chamber, 600 Flume Street #216, asked if people
     purchasing property in the future would know that the Humboldt Dump was a toxic site.

     Councilmember Jarvis moved approval of the Planning Commission’s recommendations relating to items #11
     through #17, using the most current Bicycle Master Plan in item #13, using the term “strive” for Level of Service
     D in item #16 per current policy, and conceptually approve item #10 until staff could have further discussions with
     Caltrans. The motion was seconded and carried with Councilmember Guzzetti being absent.

     C.18. Resource Management Zoning Overlay. Analyze land with known sensitive resources but no Resource
     Management Area designation. Staff will come back with a recommendation.

     C.19. Resource Management. Modify page 7-12, second paragraph, line 9, to change language that was agreed
     to at the time of adoption of the General Plan relating to Resource Management, Monitoring and Reporting
     Information in the Open Space Element.

     C.20. Urban Uses Adjacent to Agricultural Uses. Amend OS-I-45 for consistency with the recent adoption of the
     comprehensive Title 19 update.

     C.21. Resource Conservation. Revise language in OS-I-15 relating to Resource Conservation Areas.

     C.22. Foothill Viewshed. Consider development standards for the Bruce Road/Manzanita Avenue/Eaton Road
     corridor to protect foothill viewshed. Planning Commission recommended consideration, but not as a high priority.

     Don Kidd, 2211 ½ Floral Avenue (#22), asked if the height of trees and landscaping would also block the
     viewshed. Jon Luvaas, 1980 Wild Oak Lane (#22), recommended keeping a view of the foothills on the east side,
     including the view down streets, and amending the policy to require that development standards be prepared.
     Barbara Vlamis, 116 West 2nd Street #3, requested development and further discussion of criteria, definitions and
     standards on resources, and also updating the Meadowfoam plan. Senior Planner Jolliffe reported that the


March 21, 2000                                       City Council                                                 Page 6
       regulatory agencies indicated this would be considered as each project came up. Elizabeth Devereaux, 296
       Honey Run Road, agreed that resource thresholds were needed along with development standards to create
       viewshed corridors. John Gillander (#18 and #19), noted that he had provided a chart showing the progression
       through the various regulatory agencies for new development, and he therefore recommended that items #18 and
       #19 not be considered further.

       Councilmember Jarvis moved approval of the Planning Commission’s recommendations relating to items #18,
       through #21, with staff to come back with recommended language relating to viewshed resources for inclusion
       in Title 19. The motion was seconded but failed to carry with Councilmembers Jarvis, Kirk and Lange voting aye,
       Councilmembers Herbert, Keene and Bertagna voting no, and Councilmember Guzzetti being absent.
       Councilmember Keene then moved approval of items #19 and #20. The motion was seconded and carried with
       Councilmember Guzzetti being absent. Councilmember Keene moved approval of item #21 if it was clear that
       the buffering would occur within a Resource Conservation Area rather than on adjacent property. The motion was
       seconded and carried with Councilmember Guzzetti being absent. Councilmember Jarvis moved to not approve
       the Planning Commission recommendation on item #22, but have staff report back on ways to protect viewsheds
       without amending the General Plan. The motion was seconded and carried with Councilmember Guzzetti being
       absent. Councilmember Jarvis moved approval of item #18. The motion was seconded but failed to carry with
       Councilmembers Kirk and Lange voting aye, Councilmembers Herbert, Jarvis, Keene and Bertagna voting no, and
       Councilmember Guzzetti being absent.

       ----------------------------------
       The Council recessed for 10 minutes and reconvened at 10:45 p.m.
       ----------------------------------

       Due to the lateness of the hour, the Council agreed to allow members of the audience speak on any of the
       remaining items without regard to the order in which they were reflected in the staff report.

       Caryn Jones, 5 Deborah Terrace (#26), relating to the Annie Bidwell Trail from Bidwell Mansion to Ten-Mile Road,
       offered to build the trail with all volunteer labor by 2005 if the City would do the environmental review. Katie Jones,
       5 Deborah Terrace, also spoke in support of the Annie Bidwell Trail. Helen Ost indicated her support of items #23
       and #24 relating to creekside greenways and item #25.b relating to a uniform encroachment policy to all City
       parklands. Bob Purvis, 2259 Dorado Cerro, supported item #23 to add Dead Horse Slough and Little Chico Creek
       Diversion under the creekside greenway program. Katrina Davis, Downtown Chico Business Association,
       indicated their support of item #30 concerning preparation of a downtown action plan. Elizabeth Devereaux
       recommended a staff report and more detailed discussion at a future meeting relating to item #29 regarding the
       concept of an Inner Ring Transit Corridor.

       E.30. Downtown Action Plan. Councilmember Jarvis moved approval of the Planning Commission’s
       recommendation to consider preparation of a downtown action plan. The motion was seconded and carried with
       Councilmember Guzzetti being absent.

       E.26. Annie Bidwell Trail. Councilmember Jarvis moved approval of the language change, with staff to come back
       to Council if more than a mitigated negative declaration of environmental review was necessary, and to report to
       Council on the amount of staff time involved if an Environmental Impact Report was required. The motion was
       seconded and carried with Councilmember Guzzetti being absent.

       Councilmember Jarvis moved to continue the five-year review of the General Plan to a date and time to be
       determined by the Mayor. The motion was seconded and carried with Councilmember Guzzetti being absent.

       Councilmember Jarvis also moved to continue this meeting past the normal 11:00 p.m. adjournment time. The
       motion was seconded and carried with Councilmember Guzzetti being absent.

4.6.   APPOINTMENT TO ARTS COMMISSION

       (This item was taken out of the order in which it was listed on the agenda.)

       On this evening’s Consent Agenda, the Council accepted a resignation from the Arts Commission, and the term


March 21, 2000                                          City Council                                                Page 7
       of the vacancy would expire 1/1/01. By memorandum dated 3/7/00, the City Clerk forwarded copies of
       applications currently on file in her office from individuals interested in being considered for appointment. It was
       noted that Aaron Bor had called the City Clerk’s Office to withdraw his application from consideration.

       Councilmember Jarvis nominated Kathy Barrett and Councilmember Keene nominated Gregg Payne. The Council
       first voted on the nomination of Kathy Barrett and she was unanimously appointed by affirmative votes from
       Councilmembers Herbert, Jarvis, Keene, Kirk, Lange and Bertagna, with Councilmember Guzzetti being absent.

4.3.   CONSIDERATION OF REQUEST REGARDING YOUTH FORUM AND POSSIBLE FORMATION OF A YOUTH
       TASK FORCE

       By letter dated 3/8/00, Councilmember Kirk proposed conducting a televised youth forum in the Council Chamber
       and she requested City Council concurrence and conceptual approval. She and Mayor Bertagna proposed to
       facilitate the forum, which would consist of youth sitting in the Council seats and engaging in discussions with
       professionals in the youth field regarding a database of all youth services, positive youth activities, and volunteer
       opportunities for youth. After hearing from the youth, it would be possible to determine the interest in forming a
       Youth Task Force and ultimately a Youth Master Plan. She added that the forum would probably be scheduled
       some time in September or October.

       Councilmember Jarvis moved conceptual approval of the proposal. The motion was seconded and carried with
       Councilmember Guzzetti being absent.

4.5.   CONSIDERATION OF CITY PARTICIPATION IN SCOUR AND DEVOUR CLEANUP DAY SPONSORED BY
       CALIFORNIA STATE UNIVERSITY CHICO (CSUC)

       City Manager Lando reported that the University planned to sponsor a Scour and Devour Cleanup Day on April
       8 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. on the CSUC campus, in the north and south campus areas, and possibly
       downtown. If the Council wanted the City to participate and assume some of the costs for sweeping and
       barricading, City staff would coordinate with the committee, assist with reasonable needs and do a pickup on
       Monday.

       Councilmember Jarvis moved approval of the City’s participation. The motion was seconded and carried with
       Councilmember Guzzetti being absent.

2.     CONSENT AGENDA

2.1.   ORDINANCE NO. 2193 -- ORDINANCE OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CHICO AMENDING THE
       CHICO MUNICIPAL CODE TO MAKE A TECHNICAL CORRECTION TO THE DEFINITION OF “NUISANCE” -
       FINAL READING AND ADOPTION

       By memorandum dated 3/3/00, the City Attorney reports that this ordinance will amend the Municipal Code by
       deleting a reference to couches from the definition of “nuisance” as recommended by the Internal Affairs
       Committee. It adds a modified definition of “nuisance” as “Dilapidated furniture in yards or on unenclosed
       porches”. The City Attorney recommends adoption of the ordinance.

2.2.   ORDINANCE OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CHICO ADDING CHAPTER 9.32, ENTITLED “GLASS-

       By memorandum dated 3/16/00, the City Attorney reports that this ordinance will amend the Municipal Code to
       establish a Glass-Free Zone in the downtown area, as previously defined, in which the possession of glass
       containers on City-owned property is prohibited. However, the prohibition would not be operative except during
       certain periods which would either be declared by resolution adopted by the Council or by letter from the City
       Manager to the Chief of Police and the Director of Public Works. The City Attorney recommends adoption of the
       ordinance.

2.3.   RESOLUTION NO. 117 99-00 -- RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CHICO AMENDING
       THE CITY’S FEE SCHEDULE (AMENDMENT NO. 244 - PARKING FEES AND RATES)

       By memorandum dated 3/17/00, the Finance Director transmits an amendment to the City of Chico Fee Schedule
       adding Section II-A-3, Annual Space Lease Renewal Fee. This addition to the Fee Schedule allows for payment
       of annual parking leases in four equal installment payments, which was authorized by the City Council at its
       meeting of 9/14/99. The Finance Director recommends adoption of the resolution.

2.4.   RESOLUTION NO. 118 99-00 -- RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CHICO INITIATING
       PROCEEDINGS TO ANNEX PROPERTY NOW LOCATED IN THE UNINCORPORATED TERRITORY OF THE
       COUNTY OF BUTTE TO THE INCORPORATED TERRITORY OF THE CITY OF CHICO - POMONA AVENUE
       ANNEXATION DISTRICT NO. 4

       By memorandum dated 3/10/00, the Community Development Assistant forwards a report on the initiation of
       annexation proceedings for two parcels at 600 and 708 Pomona Avenue. One of the parcels proposed for
       annexation contains a triplex and the other a single family residence. The site is designated and prezoned for
       low density residential use. The annexation has been initiated to allow connection to the sanitary sewer system
       and abandonment of the failed septic system on one of the parcels. The Community Development Assistant
       recommends adoption of the resolution.

2.5.   RESOLUTION NO. 119 99-00 -- RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CHICO INITIATING
       PROCEEDINGS TO ANNEX PROPERTY NOW LOCATED IN THE UNINCORPORATED TERRITORY OF THE
       COUNTY OF BUTTE TO THE INCORPORATED TERRITORY OF THE CITY OF CHICO - IVY STREET
       ANNEXATION DISTRICT NO. 3

       By memorandum dated 3/13/00, the Community Development Assistant forwards a report on initiation of the
       annexation of 15 parcels located on Park Avenue, Estes Road, Westfield Lane and north of the terminus of Ivy
       Street. This annexation includes the entirety of an “island of unincorporated territory” and will be processed
       through special provisions in state law. In accordance with adopted LAFCo policy, the City must adopt a
       resolution to initiate the annexation of property to the City. The resolution, upon adoption, will initiate the
       annexation of the properties developed, or proposed for development, with light industrial uses. The Community
       Development Assistant recommends adoption of the resolution.

2.6.   RESOLUTION NO. 120 99-00 -- RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CHICO INITIATING
       PROCEEDINGS TO ANNEX PROPERTY NOW LOCATED IN THE UNINCORPORATED TERRITORY OF THE
       COUNTY OF BUTTE TO THE INCORPORATED TERRITORY OF THE CITY OF CHICO - CERES AVENUE
       ANNEXATION DISTRICT NO. 3

April 4, 2000                                     City Council                                               page 2
       By memorandum dated 3/10/00, the Community Development Assistant forwards a report on initiation of the
       annexation of 2670 Ceres Avenue. In accordance with adopted LAFCo policy, the City must adopt a resolution
       to initiate the annexation of property to the City. The resolution, upon adoption, will initiate the annexation of the
       property developed with a single family residence. The Community Development Assistant recommends adoption
       of the resolution.

2.7.   RESOLUTION NO. 121 99-00 -- RESOLUTION OF INTENTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CHICO
       TO ABANDON AND VACATE A PUBLIC STREET PURSUANT TO THE PUBLIC STREETS, HIGHWAYS, AND
       SERVICE EASEMENTS VACATION LAW - (EAST SIDE OF SPRUCE AVENUE SOUTH OF EAST
       SACRAMENTO AVENUE)

       By memorandum dated 3/13/00, the Director of Public Works reports that at the request of the adjacent owners,
       Lynn and Daniel Pardini, this resolution will initiate the abandonment process for a 15-foot wide strip of Spruce
       Avenue right-of-way. The Director of Public Works recommends adoption of this resolution which will schedule
       a public hearing at Council’s 5/2/00 meeting.

2.8.   RESOLUTION NO. 122 99-00 -- RESOLUTION OF INTENTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CHICO
       TO ORDER FORMATION OF A MAINTENANCE DISTRICT PURSUANT TO THE MAINTENANCE DISTRICT
       ORDINANCE OF 1997 - CITY OF CHICO MAINTENANCE DISTRICT NO. 90 (AMBER GROVE/GREENFIELD
       SUBDIVISIONS)

       By memorandum dated 3/23/00, the Director of Public Works reports that a resolution of intention to form this
       district was previously adopted by Council at its meeting of 9/21/99. Subsequently, ballots were mailed and
       public hearings were scheduled to consider the proposed annual assessment of $9.82 per year for the future
       replacement and annual maintenance of the storm drainage facilities specific to the Amber Grove/Greenfield
       Subdivisions, and the related wood fencing and landscaping adjacent to the facilities. At the first public hearing,
       Council requested that staff conduct a neighborhood meeting to address the concerns of some of the residents,
       and the process to form the district was abandoned. A neighborhood meeting was held on 2/23/00, and
       approximately twelve residents attended. As a result of that meeting, the level of service was reduced, the
       landscaping and irrigation in front of the facilities were removed, and the wood fencing was changed to chain link
       fencing, all of which resulted in a reduction of the annual assessment from $9.82 per year to $3.43 per year per
       residential parcel.

       At its meeting of 3/21/00, the Council considered the proposed reduction in level of service, landscaping and
       fencing amenities, and determined that the ballot formation process for this district should be reinstituted at the
       level originally proposed, for an annual assessment of $9.82 per year per residential parcel. The resolution of
       intention to form this district must be adopted by Council in order to proceed with the process. Following adoption
       of the resolution of intention, ballots will be mailed to all residents and businesses in the subdivisions and two
       public hearings will be scheduled.

       Since these subdivisions were built in the County, and the County Service Area (CSA #150) was dissolved upon
       annexation to the City in 1996, no funding mechanism currently exists for the future replacement and annual
       maintenance and operation of the storm drainage facilities for these subdivisions. In accordance with the
       provisions of Proposition 218 and Chapter 3.81 of the Chico Municipal Code, Council is being asked to adopt the
       above resolution which will direct the City Clerk to schedule two public hearings on the proposed district. Prior
       to the hearings, a revised ballot will be mailed to all property owners to allow them to vote on whether they wish
       to be assessed for the ongoing maintenance and operation of the district and the establishment of a reserve fund
       for replacement of the storm drainage facilities. The Director of Public Works recommends adoption of the
       resolution and that the City Clerk schedule the public hearings.

2.9.   MINUTE ORDER NO. 7-00 -- AUTHORIZATION FOR CITY MANAGER TO EXECUTE AMENDMENT TO
       AGREEMENT WITH MEDIATION CENTER OF THE NORTH VALLEY FOR USE OF CITY OF CHICO FUNDS
       (1998-99 FY &1999-00 FY)

       By letter dated 1/19/00, Margaret Gunnell, Executive Director of the Mediation Center of the North Valley (MCNV),
       reports that the organization, in attempting to perform contracted referral mediation services for 1998-99 and
       1999-00, had underestimated the time required to develop the prototype Chico Police Referral Mediation Program
       in consultation with the Chico Police Department. Ms. Gunnell requests that the agreements be amended to
       allow the funding committed to referred mediation for the rollover funds from FY 98-99 ($1,000) and the first half

April 4, 2000                                        City Council                                                   page 3
       funds from FY 99-00 ($1,920) be approved for the time spent in planning, development and implementation of the
       police referral program with recognition of consideration for other services provided to City residents by other
       MCNV programs. There is no change in the total funds allocated; however, as the funding requests to the City
       Council were targeted specifically to client services rather than development of the Chico Police Referral Mediation
       Program, the request to amend must be approved by the City Council. Following review of the request,
       agreements, and a meeting with Ms. Gunnell, the Assistant City Manager recommends approval of the Minute
       Order, which amends the agreements as set forth above, with the additional provision that the second half funding
       for FY 99-00 be expended to underwrite the costs of providing mediation services/client contacts for 10 mediation
       referrals for the Chico Police Referral Mediation Program for FY 99-00, in addition to any other client services
       required by the FY 99-00 funding agreement.

2.10. APPROVAL OF ADMINISTRATIVE PROCEDURE AND POLICY NO. 10-38 ENTITLED “AWARD OF BADGE,
      PLAQUE OR OTHER AWARD UPON RETIREMENT OR PROMOTION”

       Currently the City does has not have a formal policy to issue badges or other awards to retiring uniformed and
       non-uniformed employees.       By memorandum dated 3/21/00, Management Analyst Herman submits
       Administrative Procedure and Policy (AP&P) No. 10-38, entitled “Award of Badge, Plaque or Award Upon
       Retirement or Promotion,” for City Council approval. The City Manager recommends approval of this
       Administrative Procedure and Policy.

2.11. APPROVAL OF MINUTES FOR MEETINGS HELD ON MARCH 7, AND 17, 2000

       The Council has been provided with copies of minutes for its meetings held on 3/7/00 and 3/17/00.

       corrected in item 4.4, first line, by replacing “Keene” with “Jarvis”, and in item 4.2.B, third paragraph, “Keene”
       would be inserted as the Councilmember making the motion.)

       Councilmember Jarvis moved adoption of the ordinance and each resolution, and approval of the remaining items
       on the Consent Agenda, including the corrections to the minutes in item 2.11. The motion was seconded and
       carried by the following vote: AYES: Councilmembers Guzzetti, Herbert, Jarvis, Keene, Kirk, Lange and Bertagna.
       NOES: None. ABSENT: None.

       Housing Officer McLaughlin reviewed his memorandum dated 3/21/00 in which he reported that the City would
       receive $1,422,000 of Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and Home Investment Partnership (HOME)
       funds for the 2000-2001 program year. The memorandum included a list of proposed housing and community
       development activities recommended by the Finance Committee at its 3/6/00 meeting for inclusion in the City’s
       draft Annual Plan. At its meeting held yesterday, the Finance Committee reviewed additional information it
       requested from staff. He added that this evening the City Council would conduct the first of two public hearings
       to receive citizen input on the use of CDBG and HOME funds in compliance with the Citizen Participation
       requirements of the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). A second hearing and adoption of
       the final Annual Plan would be scheduled for Council’s meeting of 5/16/00. After receiving public input at tonight’s
       public hearing the Council would be asked to: 1) adopt a draft Annual Plan; and 2) direct staff to publish the draft
       Annual Plan as part of a 30-day public comment period.

       dated 3/20/00 from the Chico Community Shelter Partnership (CCSP) to include an allocation of $50,000 for the
       eventual acquisition or renovation of a permanent shelter (this would be in addition to the $105,000 the City had
       already set aside for this purpose). Copies of the letter were provided to Council this evening. He indicated that
       the Finance Committee recommended that the request not be included in the 2000-01 Annual Plan, but rather
       be considered further by the Committee if and when unanticipated program income became available from a

       dedicated to the City. At its 3/7/00 meeting, the City Council adopted a resolution of intention to abandon this
       easement and set a public hearing for 4/4/00. He recommended adoption of the resolution.

4.6.   ITEMS ADDED AFTER POSTING OF THE AGENDA. None.

5.     BUSINESS FROM THE FLOOR

       Recycling Containers for Multi-Family Residential Complexes. John Gillander reported that where he lived in an
       apartment complex at 215 Lassen Avenue the recycling containers that were provided were not large enough to
       hold all the recyclable material from tenants and, therefore, the excess was being placed in containers for solid
       waste. The City Manager reported that staff would investigate the matter and report back to Council.

6.     REPORTS AND COMMUNICATIONS

       The following reports and communication items were provided for the Council’s information. No action could be
       taken on any of the items unless the Council agreed to include them on a subsequent posted agenda.

6.1.   Memorandum dated 3/21/00 from Management Analyst Herman provides a report on the California Integrated
       Waste Management Board’s approval of the City’s request to change its AB 939 base-year to 1995, and the
       Board’s finding that the City has fulfilled the requirements of Compliance Order IWM BR99-34. With the new
       base-year, the City’s diversion rate for 1995 is 43%, which exceeds the state mandate of 25% diversion.

4.     REGULAR AGENDA

4.1.   CONSIDERATION OF THE CITY OF CHICO’S NOISE ORDINANCE

       The City Council scheduled tonight’s meeting for the purpose of reviewing the City of Chico’s noise ordinance.
       The Council previously directed staff to rewrite the noise ordinance to eliminate ambiguities and to provide for both
       a warning process prior to citation issuance and the development of objective implementation standards. The
       Internal Affairs Committee of the City Council had discussed this issue over an extended time period, and was
       requesting City Council direction. The Council had been provided with copies of the draft noise ordinance, as
       well as various memoranda regarding the contents of that ordinance, including Police Chief and Planning Director
       memoranda dated 1/25/00 and 4/5/00 containing recommendations on enforcement and noise standards,
       memorandum from Councilmember Jarvis regarding the Internal Affairs Committee’s recommendations, and
       memorandum dated 4/3/00 from the City Manager regarding the ordinance. There were several issues which
       needed to be resolved during this public meeting to be inserted into the ordinance should Council wish to proceed
       with introductory reading.

       Received this evening were (a) University Associated Students resolution dated 2/23/00, (b) letter from Kimberly,
       Darrell and Patricia Smith, 130 Cedar Street, dated 4/13/00, (c) letter from Stephen Miller, 420 Maple Street,
       dated 4/11/00, and (d) Noise Measurement Data & Supporting Documentation report prepared by Bollard &
       Brennan, Loomis, for the City of Chico, dated 10/29/99.

       City Manager Lando reported that the issues he believed the Council needed to address at the conclusion of
       public comments were (a) the number of hours between the written warning and the issuance of a citation, (b)
       whether or not to use noise meters because varying ambient noise levels posed problems, (c) determining the
       dBA noise limits for residential, commercial/industrial, and public property along with daytime and nighttime
       limits, and (d) whether to set higher noise limits in the campus area surrounding the University as outlined on a
       map attached to the Planning Director’s memorandum (generally bounded by the Esplanade/Normal Street, Little
       Chico Creek, Walnut Street/Nord Avenue, and West 4th Avenue/West Sacramento Avenue).
       Charlie Preusser, 1405 West 3rd Street, South Campus Neighborhood Association, recommended clarifying the
       definition of “reasonable person of normal sensitivity”, utilizing a noise meter before issuing a citation, and
       establishing a mediation process for complaints. Bill Priel, 666 Esplanade, suggested that two citizen complaints
       not be required before issuing a citation, and reviewing the effectiveness of the ordinance again in a year. Dan
       Davis, Chamber of Commerce, noted that issuance of citations should be left to the discretion of police officers
       rather than using a noise meter. Bob Ray, 1405 West 3rd Street, South Campus Neighborhood Association,
       asked that the hours for higher noise levels on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights be different from the
       standard noise levels, and that noise meters be used. Greg Bard, 1505 West 3rd Street #B, South Campus
       Neighborhood Association, recommended using noise meters for clear measurement of noise levels, that the
       noise be measured at the property line of the complainant, that a citation should require two citizen complaints
       rather than one citizen complaint corroborated by a police officer, and that a mediation process be established.

       Jonathan Smith, 742 West 6th Street #C, Inter Fraternity Council, spoke in favor of 12 hours between a complaint
       and a citation, and against using noise meters because of the wide variations that could occur in ambient noise

April 13, 2000                                       Chico City Council                                         Page 1
      levels. Dolly Brown, 2166 Noel Court, Government Affairs Committee of the Associated Students, reviewed their
      2/23/00 resolution recommending that noise levels be measured from the complainant’s property line, that the
      time between a complaint and citation be 12 hours, and that two citizens complaints from two different locations
      be required if a noise meter is not used. Greg Norwood, 446 West 10th Street, pointed out that an officer’s
      verification didn’t work because noise levels were down by the time they arrived, and he wanted enforcement south
      of Little Chico Creek. Kenn Vance, 811 West 2nd Avenue #3, recommended measuring noise at the complaining
      person’s property line. Betty Nopel, 517 West 1st Avenue, expressed concern for residents who might be fearful
      of making a complaint as well as the related problems that were associated with parties. Steve Johnson, 2171
      Ramsey Way, thought the “reasonable person” standard would be a problem in enforcing the ordinance.

      Jeff DeFranco, 1228 Chestnut Street, Associated Students Vice President, asked if the amount of the fines for
      noise violations could be lowered or limited, believed that 12 hours rather than 18 hours between a warning and
      a citation was more likely to cover a single incident, and recommended that the campus neighborhoods have a
      different noise standard. April Alexander, 1391 East Lindo #5, suggested using noise meters and measuring
      noise at the complainant’s property line. Heide Ogle, 343 West 8th Street, recommended measuring noise at the
      complainant’s property line. Cyrus Keshmiri, 1505 West 3rd Street #B, asked that ambient noise level standards
      be those taken at daybreak and that fines be no more than $250.

      Councilmember Keene moved that the ordinance be amended to provide that use of noise meters be optional at
      the discretion of a police officer, that a citation be issued upon receiving one citizen complaint and corroboration
      by a police officer or by a citizen complaint, that there be a minimum 18-hour time period between a warning and
      a citation, that there be only one noise level standard throughout the City, and that noise be measured at the
      property line of the source. The motion was seconded by Councilmember Herbert who noted that since the Police
      Department indicated more noise citations were issued outside of the campus area, there wasn’t a need for two
      different noise standards.

      Councilmember Jarvis was opposed to the motion in total, recommending 12 hours between the warning and
      citation, priority for corroboration from a second source, using noise meters rather than an officer’s corroboration,
      and establishing a mediation process. Councilmember Guzzetti was also opposed to the motion for the reasons
      stated by Councilmember Jarvis, plus he questioned noise levels at bars or auto races. Councilmember Lange
      was in favor of the motion as stated. Councilmember Kirk was in favor of 12 hours between the warning and
      citation and review of the ordinance after one year.

      Councilmember Keene amended his motion to further amend the ordinance to establish maximum noise levels
      at 70 dBA from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. and 60 dBA from 9:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m. The amendment was seconded
      by Councilmember Herbert. The main motion and amendment then carried with Councilmembers Herbert, Keene,
      Lange and Bertagna voting aye, and Councilmembers Guzzetti, Jarvis and Kirk voting no.

      Councilmember Jarvis recommended that the ordinance be amended so that the provisions of Section 8 of the
      ordinance (violation--residential property limits or general noise regulations) would be applied equally to Section
      3 (residential, commercial and industrial property noise limits), Section 4 (public property noise limits), and
      Section 6 (general noise regulations). Councilmember Keene moved approval of the recommendation. The
      motion was seconded and unanimously carried.

      Councilmember Keene moved to confirm Section 9 of the ordinance to delete “audio” from the title “noise from
      vehicle equipment”. The motion was seconded and unanimously carried.

      Councilmember Jarvis recommended that the ordinance be clarified to provide that if a second complaint wasn’t
      received, then an officer could corroborate a noise complaint. Councilmember Keene moved approval of the
      recommendation. The motion was seconded and unanimously carried.

      ORDINANCE OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CHICO AMENDING VARIOUS PROVISIONS OF
      CHAPTER 9.38, ENTITLED “NOISE,” OF THE CHICO MUNICIPAL CODE - INTRODUCTORY READING.
      Councilmember Keene read the title and then moved for introductory reading of the ordinance as amended. The
      motion was seconded and unanimously carried.
      Councilmember Jarvis recommended that the Police Department be directed to establish a mediation procedure
      relating to the noise ordinance in lieu of a citation. Police Chief Efford reported that the department now utilized
      the services of North Valley Mediation Services, and City Manager Lando added that the parties could be handed
      information regarding mediation services when complaints were made or warnings/citations issued.

April 13, 2000                                      Chico City Council                                         Page 2
       Councilmember Jarvis also suggested that the process be made part of the freshman orientation. Councilmember
       Guzzetti suggested use of the mediation procedure be left to the discretion of the person making the complaint,
       but the Police Chief noted that both parties would have to agree. Councilmember Keene pointed out that the
       mediation process could not be substituted for the noise ordinance regulations.

       It was the consensus of the Council to have the Police Chief establish a mediation process with regard to noise
       complaints. The Council also agreed to review the ordinance within a year.

4.2.   ITEMS ADDED AFTER POSTING OF THE AGENDA.

       April 25 Closed Session. City Manager Lando reported that during the 4/25/00 meeting, the Council would need
       to meet in closed session for approximately one hour to discuss the pending litigation relating to the Airport
       groundwater contamination, and for approximately 45 minutes to discuss negotiations with all employee groups.
       The Council agreed to meet at 8:30 a.m. on the first item (the open session would be changed from 9:00 a.m.
       to 9:30 a.m.) and at some other time during the day on the second item.

                                                     May 2, 2000


       residential units, one contained an office complex and three were vacant. This annexation was initiated at the

       ----------------------------------
       Councilmember Guzzetti arrived at the meeting at 7:50 p.m.
       ----------------------------------

       As this inhabited (more than 11 registered voters) annexation included properties which did not request
       annexation, the City Council must hold a hearing to receive protests to annexation. Based on the size of the
       protest, the Council must take one of the following actions: (1) Terminate the annexation if a majority protest was
       filed by 50% or more of the registered voters. (2) Approve the annexation subject to confirmation at an election
       if the protest represented more than 25% of the assessed value of land or at least 25% but less than 50% of the
       registered voters in the area proposed for annexation. (3) Approve the annexation if the protest represented less
       than 25% of the assessed value of land and less than 25% of the registered voters in the area proposed for
       annexation. In the absence of a valid protest, the Community Development Assistant recommended adoption
       of the resolution.

       No one spoke from the audience, no written protests were received, and the Mayor declared the hearing closed.

       Public Works Director Ross reported that at its meeting of 4/4/00, the City Council adopted the Resolution of
       Intention initiating this abandonment and setting today’s public hearing. By memorandum dated 3/13/00, he
       reported that at the request of the adjacent owners, Lynn and Daniel Pardini, this proposed action would abandon
       a 15-foot wide strip of Spruce Avenue right-of-way. He recommended adoption of this resolution.

       No one spoke from the audience and the Mayor declared the hearing closed.

4.     REGULAR AGENDA

4.1.   ITEMS REMOVED FROM THE CONSENT AGENDA

       2.4.   Resolution Initiating Annexation of East 8th Street Annexation District No. 17. John Schaller, 819 El Monte
              Avenue, representing Philip Smith, reported that the deed had not yet been recorded that would transfer
              some of the Benedict Ranch property to property owners on Husa Lane. Further, the developer was to
              deed an easement to the owners on the south side of Benedict Ranch and use Husa Lane as an easement,
              but he had not yet signed any documents. He asked that the annexation be continued for a month. Jim
              Stevens, North Star Engineering, thought all agreements had been negotiated before the current owner
              became involved.

              Following discussion, Councilmember Keene moved that the matter be continued until the 6/6/00 Council


                                                            4
                                                      May 2, 2000


              meeting. The motion was seconded and unanimously carried. The City Manager indicated to
              Councilmember Jarvis that even though the 6/6/00 meeting was an all-day budget review, it would be ok
              to place the item on the Consent Agenda.

4.2.   CONSIDERATION OF TRAFFIC CALMING MEASURES ALONG EAST FIRST AVENUE BETWEEN THE
       ESPLANADE AND MANGROVE AVENUE

       Mayor Bertagna did not participate in this agenda item since his business was located on Mangrove Avenue, near
       the intersection of East 1st Avenue. Vice Mayor Herbert presided over this portion of the meeting.

       By memorandum dated 4/13/00, the Assistant Director of Public Works provided the staff analysis regarding East
       First Avenue traffic calming measures as requested by the Internal Affairs Committee at its 3/14/00 meeting. At
       that meeting the Committee recommended (2-0, Bertagna abstaining) that these issues be submitted for full City
       Council consideration with the following recommendations: (1) that a pedestrian refuge be installed on East First
       Avenue at its intersection with Laburnum, without the installation of a left turn lane; (2) that six months after
       installation of the pedestrian refuge, the proposal for bulbing at all or some of the other intersections on East First
       Avenue between Mangrove and Esplanade be considered; and (3) that staff be requested to provide a report on
       the advantages, disadvantages, and cost of a pedestrian signal at the intersection of East First Avenue and
       Oleander.

       This evening the Council received a fax letter received 5/2/00 from Robin Keehn, 273 East 3rd Avenue, indicating
       that any calming efforts to help safety cross East 1st Avenue at Laburnum would be appreciated, and a letter dated
       5/2/00 from Marc Moretti, 262 East 1st Avenue, asking that parking not be eliminated in front of his home.

       Councilmember Keene questioned if pedestrians would go out of their way to Laburnum if they wanted to cross
       as Oleander. Councilmember Jarvis reported that the Internal Affairs Committee thought they would if it was a
       safer crossing, and the Committee did not want to place traffic controls at Oleander that would have the potential
       of making vehicles avoid the intersection and travel on adjacent residential streets.

       Frank Zebley reported that he managed several properties on East 1st Avenue and he was concerned with the
       elimination of any on-street parking. Peter Milbury, 1120 Laburnum Avenue, supported the proposal but also
       recommended bulbing at all intersections on East 1st Avenue. Melinda Vasquez, 260 East Sacramento Avenue,
       supported the proposal at Laburnum but was opposed to any future traffic controls at Oleander that would move
       traffic to adjacent residential streets. Lynn Pardini, 455 East Sacramento Avenue, doubted that any traffic
       measures would prevent Chico Junior and Senior High students from jaywalking wherever they wanted. Kenn
       Vance, 811 West 2nd Avenue #3, asked if those on bicycles or skateboards could wait on the pedestrian refuge
       and Council indicated that they could. Tom Masterson, 351 East 1st Avenue, recommended improvements to 3rd
       and 5th Avenues in order to reduce the number of vehicles using East 1 st   Avenue. E. Gougeon, 180 East 1                st

       Avenue, asked if parking would still be allowed on East 1st Avenue and the Council indicated that it would.

       In response to Councilmember Jarvis, the Director of Public Works reported that the pedestrian refuge could
       possibly be constructed this summer if a supplemental appropriation was approved ($15,000 estimated cost).

       Following Council discussion, Councilmember Jarvis moved approval of the installation of a pedestrian refuge
       on East 1st Avenue at its intersection with Laburnum, without the installation of left-turn lanes, prohibiting
       parking on the four corners of East 1st Avenue at its intersection with Laburnum Avenue in front on 295, 298, 351
       and 354 East 1st Avenue, approval of a supplemental appropriation for the project, and review of the effectiveness
       of the pedestrian refuge at the end of the school semester following its installation. The motion was seconded
       and carried with Mayor Bertagna abstaining. (Traffic Regulation Amendment to be processed administratively.)

       The Mayor presided over the remainder of the meeting.



4.3.   CONSIDERATION OF FIVE-YEAR REVIEW OF THE GENERAL PLAN



                                                              5
                                              May 2, 2000


By memorandum dated 4/18/00, Senior Planner Hayes forwarded the Five-Year Review of the General Plan,
Planning Commission recommendations regarding staff and public comments received to date, information
requested by Council at its 3/21/00 meeting, and a listing of Council directives from the 3/21/00 meeting. The Five-
Year Review report was provided to the Council under separate cover. He reported that additional information
was being provided on item No. 2 (clustering in foothills), No. 8 (evaluate designating Very Low Density
Residential land to Low Density Residential), and No. 26 (Annie Bidwell Trail).

23 - Dead Horse Slough & Little Chico Creek Diversion. Councilmember Guzzetti moved approval of adding these
into the creekside greenway program. The motion was seconded and carried with Councilmembers Guzzetti,
Jarvis, Kirk and Lange voting aye, and Councilmembers Herbert, Keene and Bertagna voting no.

24 - Creekside Greenways. Senior Planner Hayes reported that staff was conducting a parcel by parcel study to
determine appropriate creekside greenways, and this could be combined with a master trails plan (item #27). Jon
Luvaas, 1980 Wild Oak Lane, spoke in support of this item. Councilmember Guzzetti moved approval of item #24.
The motion was seconded and unanimously carried.

25.a - Trails along Creekside Greenways. Councilmember Herbert moved to not include an implementing policy
for a foot/equestrian trail the length of every creekside park. The motion was seconded and carried with
Councilmembers Herbert, Keene, Lange and Bertagna voting aye, and Councilmembers Guzzetti, Jarvis and Kirk
voting no.

25.b - Consider Uniform encroachment policy on all City parklands. City Manager Lando stated his concerns with
areas such as “lost park” where boundaries were not clear, and the need for public hearings and notice to all
potential affected property owners if the Council decided to consider it. Councilmember Guzzetti moved that the
item be referred to the Internal Affairs Committee for consideration, and the motion was seconded by
Councilmember Jarvis. Councilmember Keene preferred dealing with alleged encroachments on a complaint basis,
and Mayor Bertagna was concerned with added staff workload to police and enforce the policy. Councilmember
Guzzetti wanted the Committee to discuss how to get the message to the public that it cannot encroach on public
land. Councilmember Jarvis recommended amending the motion to refer the matter first to the Park Commission
and then the Committee, and Councilmember Guzzetti agreed with the amendment. Mayor Bertagna and
Councilmember Keene indicated they would only support the motion as a discussion item before the Commission
and Committee. The motion, as amended, was then carried with Councilmembers Guzzetti, Jarvis, Keene, Kirk,
Lange and Bertagna voting aye, and Councilmember Herbert voting no.

27 - Recreational trails from urban area into foothills. Senior Planner Hayes reported that implementation now
takes place through the development review process, whereas the Planning Commission asked the Council to
consider a master trails plan so that opportunities to implement a comprehensive trail system could be considered
during project review. In response to Council concerns, the City Manager reported that the Park Commission,
Planning Commission or Bicycle Advisory Committee could provide a list of priorities, and require that
maintenance costs be considered in order to develop the plan. Councilmember Jarvis moved to develop a master
trails plan. The motion was seconded and unanimously carried.

28 - Office/Residential Uses on Salem & Wall Streets. Councilmember Keene moved approval of allowing existing
residences to be converted to office use in order to preserve the historical character of the area. The motion was
seconded and unanimously carried.

29 - Inner ring transit corridor. Council indicated it had no problem with the inner ring transit corridor concept as
presently stated as long as it didn’t impact existing businesses.

31 - Assist neighborhoods and districts in developing design guidelines. Senior Planner Hayes reported that the
Planning Commission directed staff to forward a previously considered neighborhood program to Council. Some
Councilmembers indicated that neighborhood consensus on issues affecting certain areas would be helpful before
they were brought to the Council, rather than having neighbors form groups because they were opposed to
something. Councilmember Keene agreed as long as two or three individuals did not purport that their views were
those of their neighborhood. Jim Owens, 1462 Mountain View Avenue, spoke in favor of the neighborhood
planning concept. John Gillander, Committee for Environmental & Economic Balance, stated his concern with


                                                      6
                                             May 2, 2000


neighborhood groups that opposed development adjacent to their properties even though such properties were
properly zoned. Following discussion, it was the consensus of Council that staff would provide copies of the
previously considered neighborhood program.

----------------------------------
The Council recessed for 10 minutes and reconvened at 9:55 p.m.
----------------------------------

32, 33, 34 - Parks & schools. Senior Planner Hayes reported that the Commission recommended Council
consideration of (a) amending the designation of the DeGarmo community park site in north Chico from
Community Commercial to Park, (b) the designation of land on Eaton Road that had previously been designated
as a community park site, (c) eliminating or relocating one of two neighborhood park sites in the West Avenues
area, and (d) amend the General Plan Land Use Diagram to reflect acquired park sites. The Council agreed with
the recommendations.

3 - Low/Moderate Income Housing Set Aside. At the 3/21/00 meeting, it was the consensus of the Council to
retain the policy to study the feasibility of increasing the Low & Moderate Income Housing Fund set-aside of the
RDA tax increment from the existing 20% to 30%. Senior Planner Hayes reported that staff was recommending
that Council not pursue this objective, due in part to increased demand for the 80% tax increment funds used for
improvement and infrastructure projects, many of which improved older neighborhoods. Councilmember Keene
moved approval of staff’s recommendation. The motion was seconded and unanimously carried.

35 & 36 - Noise. Senior Planner Hayes reported that staff was developing guidelines for mitigating noise along
arterial streets adjacent to residential areas, through measures other that sound walls where feasible, and would
be providing copies to Council when they were completed. On the issue of establishing noise standards for
various land uses, he noted that the Council recently adopted comprehensive amendments to the City’s noise
ordinance. No Council action was required on this item.

2 - Clustering of development at higher elevations. Senior Planner Hayes reported that staff attempted to define
“encourage” and was of the opinion that if there was not a compelling reason to not do something, then it should
be done. Councilmember Keene did not want encourage to be interpreted as a mandate, and applicants having
to make substantial expenditures before they even reached the hearing stage. Planning Director Seidler indicated
that staff did not consider encourage a mandate, but rather working on each situation or project individually.
Councilmember Jarvis believed that encourage was a compromise between shall and shall not and that discretion
needed to be afforded to staff. Senior Planner Hayes added that consideration would not be lot by lot but rather
an entire parcel and where clustering was appropriate. Councilmember Keene moved that clustering be
encouraged in accordance with staff’s recommendation, and the motion was seconded by Councilmember Herbert.
Jon Luvaas noted that clustering should be implemented unless there was a good reason not to do so, since it
was more economical for home buyers and for the delivery of public services. Jim Owens noted that clustering
would occur to some degree due to constraints caused by the layout of the land. Councilmember Keene amended
his motion to encourage clustering based on resources on the site, and Councilmember Herbert seconded the
amendment. The motion was then carried with Councilmembers Guzzetti, Herbert, Keene, Kirk, Lange and
Bertagna voting aye, and Councilmember Jarvis voting no.

8 - Low Density & Very Low Density Residential Land. Senior Planner Hayes reported that staff investigated the
suggestion of designating available Very Low Density Residential land to Low Density Residential use, and
determined that opportunities to make such amendments were small and would not result in sizable increased
housing numbers. The Council agreed to leave the policy as is in the General Plan.

26 - Annie Bidwell Trail. Planning Director Seidler reported that at its 3/21/00 meeting, the Council asked for a
report on the environmental review for a trail on the south side of Big Chico Creek from the Five-Mile Recreation
Area to Ten-Mile Road. It was his belief that the project could be accomplished with a Negative Declaration
because the trail could be moved as needed to avoid environmentally sensitive areas. The project would have
to start within two weeks with a botanical study, because wildflowers were now in bloom, which he estimated
would cost $5,000, or have to wait until next year. He mentioned other studies that would follow and their
estimated costs. Park Director Beardsley added that the resource analysis study was now underway for the upper


                                                    7
                                                   May 2, 2000


       park area located on the south side of Big Chico Creek. Councilmember Jarvis moved that the Council determine
       that there was a need to take immediate action and that the need for action came to the attention of the City
       subsequent to the agenda being posted. The motion was seconded and unanimously carried. She then moved
       approval of a supplemental appropriation in the amount of $5,000 for a botanical study related to the Annie
       Bidwell Trail. The motion was seconded and unanimously carried.

4.4.   CONSIDERATION OF REPORT AND RECOMMENDATIONS FROM THE ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT
       COMMITTEE ON ITS MEETING HELD 4/13/00

       Councilmember Kirk provided a report on the Economic Development Committee meeting held on 4/13/00, at which
       time the matters listed below were considered. All Committee members were present: Councilmembers Keene,
       Lange, and Kirk, Chair.

       A. (Council action required to approve recommendation)
          CONSIDERATIONOFPROPOSEDREVISIONSTOTHE PROGRAM GUIDELINES FOR THE COMMUNITY
          DEVELOPMENT BLOCK GRANT (CDBG) REVOLVING LOAN FUND

           The Committee considered recommendations from the Tri-County Economic Development Corporation
           (TCEDC) for proposed revisions to the CDBG Revolving Loan Program Guidelines. The TCEDC
           recommended that the guidelines be amended to 1) allow businesses outside the city limits and within the
           Chico Urban Area to be eligible for a loan, and 2) eliminate or increase the maximum loan amount to $75,000.
           After its review of the proposed revisions, the Committee recommended by a 2-1 vote to increase the
           maximum loan amount from $25,000 to $50,000, with Councilmember Kirk preferring to increase the maximum
           loan to $75,000. The Committee also recommended that the program guidelines not be revised to allow
           businesses outside the city limits to be eligible for these loans.

           Marc Nemanic of the Tri-County EDC reported that more funding would allow more loans, however, they
           would work within the funding provided by the City.

           MINUTE ORDER NO. 10-00 -- AUTHORIZATION FOR THE CITY MANAGER TO AMEND THE
           AGREEMENT WITH TRI COUNTY ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT CORPORATION TO REVISE THE
           COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT BLOCK GRANT REVOLVING LOAN FUND PROGRAM GUIDELINES.
           Councilmember Guzzetti moved approval of the minute order. The motion was seconded and unanimously
           carried.

       B. (Council action required to approve the recommendation)
          CONSIDERATION OF RECOMMENDATIONS REGARDING PRIORITY PROJECTS FOR THE 2000-01
          UPDATE OF THE COMPREHENSIVE ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT STRATEGY (CEDS).

           The Tri-County Economic Development Corporation (TCEDC) was the planning and coordinating agency
           for the Tri-County Economic Development District, which consists of the three counties and ten incorporated
           cities within the region of Butte, Glenn and Tehama counties. Last year, the Federal Economic Development
           Administration (EDA) required TCEDC to submit a five-year Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy
           (CEDS) for the District, which contained a list of projects each jurisdiction would like to have funded and
           completed. The projects contained in the CEDS must be related to economic development and must provide
           technical assistance, financing or infrastructure.

           The Federal EDA required that the CEDS document be updated annually. The Economic Development
           Committee reviewed the current list of proposed CEDS projects at its 4/13/00 meeting for possible additions
           or revisions for the 2000-01 update. By memorandum dated 4/17/00, Management Analyst Herman submitted
           the list of current CEDS projects that were reviewed by the Committee, and the Committee’s recommendations
           regarding revisions to the list to be submitted by TCEDC for 2000-01. The Economic Development Committee
           recommended approval of the proposed revised 2000-01 CEDS projects.

           Councilmember Guzzetti moved approval of the Committee’s recommendation. The motion was seconded
           and unanimously carried.

4.5.   CONSIDERATION OF REPORT AND RECOMMENDATIONS FROM THE INTERNAL AFFAIRS COMMITTEE
       ON ITS MEETING HELD ON 4/11/00

       Councilmember Jarvis reviewed a memorandum dated 4/13/00 from the Internal Affairs Committee that provided
       a report on its meeting held on 4/11/00, at which time the matters listed below were considered. Committee

2.1.   CHICO REDEVELOPMENT AGENCY MINUTE ORDER NO. RDA 2-00 -- AUTHORIZATION FOR THE
       EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR TO ENTER INTO AN OWNER’S PARTICIPATION AGREEMENT WITH UNIPRISE
       (AKA UNITED HEALTH CARE) FOR REIMBURSEMENT OF COSTS TO INSTALL PUBLIC IMPROVEMENTS
       DURING THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE FIRM’S PERMANENT FACILITY IN CHICO

       Uniprise, also known as United Health Care, recently constructed and moved into its permanent facility on 20th
       Street in Chico. Uniprise has requested financial assistance from the Agency for the costs the firm incurred to
       install the public improvements necessary for the construction of their new facility. At its 3/9/00 meeting, the
       Economic Development Committee reviewed this request for assistance and recommended that the
       Redevelopment Agency reimburse Uniprise for up to $175,000 of the costs of the public improvements. The
       reimbursement amount is based on 50% of the tax increment the new facility is expected to generate, and will be
       paid over a ten-year period. This recommendation is consistent with previous reimbursement agreements the
       Agency has entered into with other expanding noncommercial businesses based on job creation and the
       anticipated tax increment the new expansion will produce. This Minute Order will authorize the Executive Director
       to enter into an owner’s participation agreement with Uniprise for Redevelopment Agency reimbursement of up
       to $175,000 of the cost of the public improvements installed during the construction of the firm’s permanent
       facility in Chico. The Economic Development Committee recommends approval of the Minute Order.

       Councilmember Jarvis moved approval of the minute order. The motion was seconded and unanimously carried.

3.     NOTICED PUBLIC HEARINGS

3.1.   HEARING ON SALE OF AGENCY-OWNED PROPERTY WITHIN THE CHICO MUNICIPAL AIRPORT
       REDEVELOPMENT PROJECT AREA TO DAVID MERAZ DBA MERAZ & ASSOCIATES

       Management Analyst Herman reviewed a memorandum dated 4/28/00 from the Executive Director of the
       Redevelopment Agency submitting the Summary Report and proposed Resolution relating to the sale of Chico
       Redevelopment Agency owned property located on Fortress Street, north of Lockheed Ave. at the Chico
       Municipal Airport to David Meraz DBA Meraz & Associates. Mr. Meraz intended to build an approximately
       30,000 sq. ft. building to be used for the manufacturing of counter tops and other kitchen products. Mr. Meraz
       was also seeking financial assistance for the property sale. The Executive Director was requesting Agency
       approval of 1) the sale of the approximate 1.0 acre parcel for $65,340 which was based on the 1998 appraised fair
       market value of $1.50 per sq. ft. for the proposed use; 2) a loan to Mr. Meraz for 90% of the purchase price of the
       land at 6% interest per year for a period of 30 years with interest deferred for 5 years from the close of escrow, and
       3) forgiveness of $5,000 of the deferred interest for each $30,000/year new job created. The Airport Commission
       and the Economic Development Committee recommended approval of the Resolution.




       In response to Councilmember Jarvis regarding the appraised value, the City Manager reported that the City


                                                             2
                                                     May 16, 2000


       would be evaluating its entire economic program in the coming year. He indicated to Councilmember Guzzetti that
       land values had gone up and down, however, the Airport Commission and Council could require an appraisal for
       each sale and add the cost to the sale price. Councilmember Kirk, a member of the Economic Development
       Committee, reported that the City had been negotiating with Mr. Meraz for approximately two years, so the
       Committee approved the sale based on the 1998 appraisal. Councilmember Keene suggested all remaining land
       for sale could be appraised each year and the cost divided up among purchasers. The City Manager noted that
       not many parcels remained for sale, until some time in the future when the west side of the Airport developed.
       Following discussion, the Council agreed with the Mayor’s recommendation to refer these questions to the
       Economic Development Committee.

       No one spoke from the audience and the Mayor declared the hearing closed.

       CHICO REDEVELOPMENT AGENCY RESOLUTION NO. RDA 1-00 -- RESOLUTION OF THE CHICO
       REDEVELOPMENT AGENCY APPROVING THAT CERTAIN AGREEMENT ENTITLED, "DISPOSITION AND
       DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENT CHICO MUNICIPAL AIRPORT COMPONENT OF THE CHICO MERGED
       REDEVELOPMENT PROJECT AREA (CHICO REDEVELOPMENT AGENCY/CITY OF CHICO/DAVID MERAZ
       DBA MERAZ & ASSOCIATES)", WHICH PROVIDES FOR THE SALE OF AGENCY-OWNED PROPERTY
       WITHIN THE BOUNDARIES OF THE CHICO MUNICIPAL AIRPORT REDEVELOPMENT PROJECT AREA TO
       DAVID MERAZ DBA MERAZ & ASSOCIATES. After reading the title, Councilmember Kirk moved adoption
       of the resolution. The motion was seconded and carried by the following vote: AYES: Councilmembers Guzzetti.
       Herbert, Jarvis, Keene, Kirk, Lange and Bertagna. NOES: None. ABSENT: None.

3.2.   HEARING ON THE SALE OF AGENCY-OWNED PROPERTY WITHIN THE CHICO MUNICIPAL AIRPORT
       REDEVELOPMENT PROJECT AREA TO SLATER LAND, INC.

       Management Analyst Herman reviewed a memorandum dated 4/28/00 from the Executive Director of the
       Redevelopment Agency submitting the Summary Report and proposed Resolution relating to the sale of Chico
       Redevelopment Agency owned property located on the corner of Airpark Blvd. and Fortress St. at the Chico
       Municipal Airport to Slater Land, Inc. Slater Land, Inc. intended to build two 20,000 sq. ft. buildings on the
       property to be used for an office complex and a training/conference center.

       On 11/30/99, the Airport Commission recommended approval of the property sale to Fortress Development Group.
       Subsequent to the Airport Commission approval, it was discovered that asbestos lined pipes were located under
       the property which needed to be properly removed as hazardous materials. Fortress Development Group
       requested that the sale price be adjusted to reflect the cost to remove the pipes. The Economic Development
       Committee reviewed this request at its 12/9/99 meeting and recommended that the Agency approve a credit toward
       the purchase price of the property for the pipe removal based on cost estimates received through a competitive
       bid process. In addition, staff recently received a letter from Fortress Development Group requesting that the
       property be sold to Slater Land, Inc., which was a subsidiary entity of Fortress Development Group.

       Therefore, the Executive Director was requesting approval of the sale of the approximate 3.76 acres of Agency
       owned property to Slater Land, Inc. for the proposed use and for the purchase price of $206,817, which was the
       1998 appraised fair market value of $245,773 ($1.50/sq. ft.) less the competitive low bid price of $38,956 for removal
       of the underground asbestos pipes. The Airport Commission and the Economic Development Committee
       recommended approval of the Resolution.

       No one spoke from the audience and the Mayor declared the hearing closed. Councilmember Guzzetti stated he
       would vote against the resolution since he would have preferred an updated appraisal.

       Butte County Office of Education, reviewed a letter dated 5/2/00 that provided information on the Healthy Chico
       Kids Coalition and a Youth Asset Development framework that would be a cooperative effort of several agencies
       and organizations. Potential activities to be explored to promote the Youth Asset Development approach included
       a one-day workshop, a town hall meeting, creation of a youth commission, establishment of a leadership vision
       team, and a survey to determine the asset levels of youth.

       The Mayor reported that Councilmember Kirk would keep the Council informed relative to youth matters.

       COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT BLOCK GRANT (CDBG) AND HOME INVESTMENT PARTNERSHIP (HOME)
       PROGRAMS

       Councilmember Jarvis abstained from voting or discussion on this item.

       Housing Officer McLaughlin reviewed his memorandum dated 5/3/00 in which he reported on the 2000-2001
       Annual Plan and the Five-Year Consolidated Plan for the allocation of Community Development Block Grant
       (CDBG) and HOME Investment Partnership (HOME) funds. The memorandum included the 2000/2001 Proposed
       Annual Plan adopted by Council at its 4/04/00 meeting and published for a 30-day comment period. There were
       no comments received during the public review period. The Council was also provided with previous staff reports
       regarding the CDBG/HOME Programs and a copy of the final Five-Year Consolidated Plan. This evening the City
       Council would conduct the second of two public hearings to receive citizen input on the use of CDBG and HOME
       funds in compliance with the Citizen Participation requirements of the Department of Housing and Urban
       Development (HUD).
       No one spoke from the audience and the Mayor declared the hearing closed.

       Councilmember Keene moved that the Council adopt the final “2000-2001 Proposed Annual Plan” and the “Five-
       Year Consolidated Plan” and authorize the City Manager to submit the “2000-2001 Proposed Annual Plan” and
       the “Five-Year Consolidated Plan” to the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) along with the
       required certifications. The motion was seconded and carried with Councilmember Jarvis abstaining.

       development of this subdivision, generally located north of East Avenue and west of Marigold Avenue, the
       developers, Donn and Carol Marshall and Pat and Suzanne Conroy, had consented to the formation of this district
       for operation and maintenance of landscaping and irrigation within the future median on Marigold Avenue, along
       Marigold Avenue, and on the storm drainage detention basin within the subdivision. This maintenance
       assessment district would provide that the City perform (or contract for) the operation and maintenance services
       which would be paid for by property owners within this district. Future annual assessments would be paid at the
       time other property taxes were collected. The Community Development Director recommended adoption of the
       Resolution.

       No one spoke from the audience and the Mayor declared the hearing closed.

       RESOLUTION NO. 139 99-00 -- RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CHICO ORDERING

       motion was seconded and carried by the following vote: AYES: Councilmembers Guzzetti, Herbert, Jarvis, Keene,
       Kirk, Lange and Bertagna. NOES: None. ABSENT: None.

3.3.   HEARING ON FORMATION OF MAINTENANCE DISTRICT NO. 500, FOOTHILL PARK EAST

       Community Development Director Baptiste reviewed his memorandum dated 4/25/00 in which he reported that this
       resolution would order the formation of Chico Maintenance Assessment District No. 500. As a condition of
       development of this subdivision, generally located north of East Avenue and between Ceanothus on the east and
       Wildwood Avenue on the west, and southwest of the Sycamore Creek Diversion Channel, the developer, Dan
       Drake, had consented to the formation of this district for operation and maintenance of landscaping and irrigation,
       soundwalls, stamped concrete paving, and stormwater treatment ponds within the development. This
       maintenance assessment district would provide that the City perform (or contract for) the operation and
       maintenance services which would be paid for by property owners within this district. Future annual assessments
       would be paid at the time other property taxes were collected. The Community Development Director
       recommended adoption of the Resolution.

       No one spoke from the audience and the Mayor declared the hearing closed.

       RESOLUTION NO. 140 99-00 -- RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CHICO ORDERING
       FORMATION OF A MAINTENANCE DISTRICT PURSUANT TO THE MAINTENANCE ASSESSMENT
       DISTRICT ORDINANCE OF 1997 (MAINTENANCE ASSESSMENT DISTRICT NO. 500 - FOOTHILL PARK EAST
       - UNIT 1. After reading the title, Councilmember Jarvis moved adoption of the resolution. The motion was
       seconded and carried by the following vote: AYES: Councilmembers Guzzetti, Herbert, Jarvis, Keene, Kirk, Lange
       and Bertagna. NOES: None. ABSENT: None.

3.4.   HEARING ON PROPOSED TRANSFER OF CABLE TELEVISION FRANCHISE FROM CHAMBERS
       COMMUNICATION CORP. TO AT&T CORP.

       Mayor Bertagna stated that he had a business relationship with Chambers Cable and he would abstain from
       discussion or voting on this matter. Vice Mayor Herbert presided over this portion of the meeting.

       Management Analyst Wood reviewed his memorandum dated 5/8/00 which provided background on the request
       of Chambers Communications Corp. to transfer its cable television franchise to a subsidiary of AT&T Corp. The
       resolution provided to Council would approve the conditional transfer of the franchise. The first ordinance would
       amend the provisions of the Chico Municipal Code relating to cable franchisees and the second ordinance would
       amend the current franchise ordinance. This evening he provided Council with his memorandum dated 5/16/00
       transmitting amended Exhibits “B” and “C” to the resolution. In addition, he noted that changes would need to
       be made to the ordinance amending Chapter 5.12 of the Municipal Code and, therefore, staff was asking that it
       be introduced at the 5/23/00 meeting and adopted on 6/6/00 with the ordinance amending the franchise ordinance.
       He explained what staff attempted to accomplish for the benefit of the City and what matters it could not regulate.
       He introduced Brenton Bleier from Folsom, special legal counsel to the City in this matter.


                                                            8
                                                   May 16, 2000


       Management Analyst Wood, City Manager Lando and Mr. Bleier responded to Council questions relating to the
       adoption of the resolution this evening, customer service, rebuilding the physical system that was underground
       in City rights of way, budgeting funds for an analysis of street repairs that might be needed in connection with
       rebuilding the system and determining if those costs were recoverable from AT&T, adopting an ordinance and
       fees for trenching in City streets, placing a moratorium on trenching permits until an ordinance could be adopted,
       the availability of a box or trap when scrambling did not work to block a program, those areas that could be
       regulated by the City and those regulated by the Federal Communications Commission, future rate increases, and
       the public access channel.

       This evening the Council received a letter dated 5/10/00 from Virginia Langdon urging the Council to approve the
       franchise transfer. Council requested that staff respond to this letter.

       Linda Langston, Pacific Bell, recommended that AT&T be required to have open Internet access on cable
       television if it was required in other communities. Mr. Bleier reported on a pending court case in Portland on
       whether or not agencies could regulate open access. Marsha Berkbigler, AT&T, reported that rate increases
       occurred in May or June so none were planned for this year, that when trenching would occur was unknown at
       this time, that trenching was not always needed since lines could be pulled through existing conduits, that the
       public access channel would be retained as long as the City wanted it, that they would do what they could to
       block channel programing for customers, and that with open access business arrangements were made with
       Internet service providers. Sean Hogue, Chambers Cable, urged Council to approve the transfer and believed it
       would benefit the community.

       No one else spoke from the audience and the Vice Mayor declared the hearing closed.

       Councilmember Guzzetti stated he would vote against the transfer because he did not believe that it would be in
       the best interests of the community or cable subscribers.

       RESOLUTION NO. 141 99-99 -- RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CHICO CONSENTING
       TO THE CONDITIONAL TRANSFER OF THE CABLE TELEVISION FRANCHISE HERETOFORE GRANTED TO
       STATE TV CABLE BY ORDINANCE NO. 1696 FROM CHAMBERS COMMUNICATIONS CORP. TO AT&T
       CORP. After reading the title, Councilmember Jarvis moved that the resolution be amended in Exhibits “B” and
       “C” as provided to Council this evening, and that the resolution be adopted as amended. The motion was
       seconded and carried by the following vote: AYES: Councilmembers Herbert, Jarvis, Keene, Kirk and Lange.
       NOES: Councilmember Guzzetti. ABSTAIN: Councilmember Bertagna. ABSENT: None.

       ORDINANCE OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CHICO AMENDING ORDINANCE 1696 GRANTING
       STATE TV CABLE A NON-EXCLUSIVE FRANCHISE TO INSTALL, CONSTRUCT, OPERATE, AND MAINTAIN

       - INTRODUCTORY READING. The ordinance received introductory reading by title only.

       ----------------------------------
       The Council recessed for 10 minutes and then reconvened at 10:00 p.m. The Mayor presided over the remainder
       of the meeting.

4.     REGULAR AGENDA

4.1.   ITEMS REMOVED FROM THE CONSENT AGENDA

       2.6.    Resolution No. 138 99-00 -- Funding Request Form to State for Recycling & Litter Reduction Act Funds.
               In response to Councilmember Kirk, Management Analyst Herman reported that it was in the City’s
               discretion where recycling containers were placed. The Mayor suggested, and the Council agreed, that
               the Solid Waste Committee (Councilmembers Herbert and Jarvis) could review locations. Councilmember


                                                           9
                                                   May 16, 2000


               Jarvis noted that since there was no longer a City/County Solid Waste/Recycling Committee on which
               she and Councilmember Herbert served, the Mayor might want to consider appointing a third member.
               The Mayor stated that he would take it under consideration.

               After reading the title, Councilmember Jarvis then moved adoption of Resolution No. 138 99-00. The
               motion was seconded and carried by the following vote: AYES: Councilmembers Guzzetti, Herbert, Jarvis,
               Keene, Kirk, Lange and Bertagna. NOES: None. ABSENT: None.

       2.7.    Minute Order No. 11-00 -- Approval of BINTF Budget. John Gillander indicated that he asked that this
               item be removed from the Consent Agenda so there could be a roll call vote on it since Council votes in
               prior years had not been unanimous.

               Councilmember Herbert moved approval of Minute Order No. 11-00. The motion was seconded and
               unanimously carried.

4.2.   CONSIDERATION OF MINUTE ORDER AUTHORIZING CITY MANAGER TO EXECUTE INTERDEPENDENT
       LEASES ALONG LINDO CHANNEL (CITY/HIGNELL TRUST)

       Park Director Beardsley reported that the minute order set forth the background of Bidwell Park and Playground
       Commission and Council consideration of interdependent leases for a term of twenty-five (25) years between the
       City and the Fred and Eileen Hignell, Jr. Family 1990 Trust which would allow use of City property by the Trust
       for landscaping, parking and access to a private business, while allowing use of Hignell property to provide a
       dedicated single public parking space and improved access to Lindo Channel from Longfellow Avenue to the
       greenway along Lindo Channel, and additional trail land along Lindo Channel to be used as greenway.

       The Bidwell Park and Playground Commission, at its 4/24/00 meeting, approved the mitigated negative declaration.
       Although the leases involved park property, the Park Commission forwarded this matter with no recommendation.
       Because the concurrent terms of the leases exceeded fifteen years, approval of the leases must be made by the
       City Council. If the Council wished to approve the leases, staff recommended approval of the minute order, subject
       to the terms and conditions set forth therein.

       Councilmember Keene reported that he subleased property from someone who leased property from Hignell and,
       therefore, he would abstain from discussion or voting on this item.

       Caryn Jones, 5 Deborah Terrace, recommended approval of the minute order. She also recommended that the trail
       later be widened to four feet and that it also be extended to the Madrone Avenue bridge. The City Attorney
       advised that the trail was a separate issue from the matter before the Council. Steven O’Bryan, a member of the
       Park Commission, recommended that the lease not be approved and that the Hignell encroachment be handled
       the same as all other encroachments in Lindo Channel. Dan Shedd, representing Hignell, requested Council
       approval of the minute order. John Merz, 1331 Broadway, was opposed to both the proposed lease and the trail
       and recommended that they either be sent back to the Commission or not be approved.

       MINUTE ORDER NO. 12-00 -- AUTHORIZATION FOR CITY MANAGER TO EXECUTE INTERDEPENDENT
       LEASES OF REAL PROPERTY ALONG LINDO CHANNEL (CITY OF CHICO/FRED AND EILEEN HIGNELL, JR.
       FAMILY 1990 LIVING TRUST). Councilmember Kirk moved approval of the minute order. The motion was
       seconded and carried with Councilmembers Herbert, Jarvis, Kirk, Lange and Bertagna voting aye, Councilmember
       Guzzetti voting no, and Councilmember Keene abstaining.

4.4.   CONSIDERATION OF FUNDING REQUEST FROM UNIVERSITY PUBLIC EVENTS/CHICO PERFORMANCES
       FOR 4TH OF JULY CELEBRATION

       The City Manager reported that by letter dated 5/2/00, Patrick Kopp, Director, and Dan DeWayne, Associate
       Director, University Public Events/Chico Performances, were seeking to form partnerships to underwrite the
       $35,000 production costs for a free 4th of July celebration in the CSUC stadium, and were asking for $5,000 in
       funding from the City to help make the event possible. He added that by letter dated 5/11/00, copies of which were
       provided to Council this evening, they indicated that they were withdrawing the funding request because the

                                                          10
                                                     May 16, 2000


       University could not ensure enough funding to make the free event possible due to the short lead time. However,
       the City Manager recommended that the $5,000 be approved for use either this year or next year.

       Councilmember Guzzetti moved approval of setting aside $5,000 in funding for the University Public Events/Chico
       Performances for a free 4th of July celebration either this year or next year. The motion was seconded and
       unanimously carried.

4.5.   INITIAL CONSIDERATION OF AN APPEAL BY DAN HAYS ON A DECISION MADE BY THE
       ARCHITECTURAL REVIEW BOARD.

       Planning Director Seidler reviewed his memorandum dated 5/3/00 in which he reported that at its 4/6/00 meeting,
       the Architectural Review Board denied the use of vinyl siding on a proposed warehouse building in an industrial
       area on property located at the north terminus of Ivy Street in south Chico, by including a condition requiring staff
       approval of a siding material other than vinyl. He recommended that the Council schedule the matter for a public
       hearing (required 4 affirmative votes) on 6/20/00 and uphold the appeal.

       Councilmember Kirk moved that the matter be scheduled for public hearing on 6/20/00 unless the Municipal Code
       would allow the Council to dispense with the hearing. The motion was seconded and unanimously carried. The
       City Manager reported that he would advise Council on whether or not a hearing was necessary.

4.6.   CONSIDERATION OF MEASURES FOR NOVEMBER 2000 BALLOT

       By memorandum dated 5/3/00, the City Clerk provided a list of possible measures for the 11/7/00 municipal ballot.
       (1) Article 34 housing units - the Internal Affairs Committee would provide a verbal report this evening regarding
       its consideration of this item at its 5/9/00 meeting. (2) Publishing ordinances - a Charter amendment to conform
       to State law which allowed publishing a summary as an alternative to publishing an ordinance in its entirety. (3)
       Deleting reference to gender - a Charter amendment to delete reference to “his” in one section that was apparently
       overlooked when such changes were approved throughout the Charter by voters a number of years ago.

       Councilmember Jarvis reported that item (1) would be considered at the Council’s 6/6/00 meeting. Councilmember
       Kirk moved approval of placing measures on the ballot relating to items (2) and (3). The motion was seconded
       and unanimously carried.

       Councilmember Kirk moved that this evening’s meeting be extended beyond the Council’s normal 11:00 p.m.
       adjournment time, to approximately 11:30 p.m. The motion was seconded and unanimously carried.

4.7.   ITEMS ADDED AFTER POSTING OF THE AGENDA

       (This matter was added to this evening’s agenda by addendum posted 5/12/00)
       INITIAL CONSIDERATION OF AN APPEAL BY TIMOTHY MUIR OF THE PLANNING DIRECTOR’S
       APPROVAL OF A CERTIFICATE OF APPROPRIATENESS AUTHORIZING DEMOLITION AND
       RECONSTRUCTION OF A PORTION OF A COMMERCIAL BUILDING LOCATED AT 902 MAIN STREET

       Planning Director Seidler reported that by memorandum dated 5/11/00 he advised the Council that he approved
       Certificate of Appropriateness No. 00-1 authorizing demolition and reconstruction of an 11,000 square foot portion
       of a 20,000 square foot commercial building (former Volpato auto dealership sales and repair) located at 902 Main
       Street. The appellant contended that the structure was of historical significance and should not be demolished.

       The Council was also provided with copies of a memorandum dated 5/11/00 from Mark Abouzeid, the applicant,
       opposing the appeal and providing additional information in support of his application.

       This evening the Council was provided with a letter dated 5/13/00 (received 5/16/00) from Timothy Muir, the
       appellant, indicating that he would not be present at tonight’s meeting, and strongly objecting that this matter
       was placed on the agenda less than 14 days after the appeal was filed, since the appeal form stated it would be
       scheduled:... “not less than 14 nor more than 45 days following the date the appeal was received”.... The Council
       was also being provided with copies of Chico Municipal Code Section 2.80.020 which provided that the time


                                                            11
                                                     May 16, 2000


       limitations set forth in Chapter 2.80 were directory rather than mandatory (except in relation to notice of an appeal
       hearing).

       Also provided this evening was a letter dated 5/16/00 from Mark Abouzeid, the applicant, providing Council with
       copies of a letter received from Pete Volpato, the former owner of the property, which gave a history of
       improvements that were made to the property over the years.

       Since the appeal form indicated 14 to 45 days, the Council agreed to give this appeal initial consideration at a
       meeting to be held on 5/22/00 at 1:00 p.m.

5.     BUSINESS FROM THE FLOOR

       Cable TV Franchise Transfer. The City Manager answered questions from Sharon Chambers, 600 Flume Street,
       regarding the time within which the Council had to act on the transfer.

       taken on any of the items unless the Council agreed to include them on a subsequent posted agenda.

       vehicles on the street in front of their residences for a longer period of time than is currently allowed (168

       This evening Ms. Ratcliffe submitted an additional letter in which she requested that a passenger car or van be
       allowed to be parked in front of its owner’s residence for 30 days.

       APPROVAL OF A CERTIFICATE OF APPROPRIATENESS AUTHORIZING DEMOLITION AND
       RECONSTRUCTION OF A PORTION OF A COMMERCIAL BUILDING LOCATED AT 902 MAIN STREET

       This item was continued from the Council's 5/16/00 meeting. Planning Director Seidler reviewed a memorandum
       dated 5/11/00 from Senior Planner Palmeri which reported that on 4/24/00 the Planning Director approved
       Certificate of Appropriateness No. 00-1 authorizing demolition and reconstruction of an 11,000 square foot
       portion of a 20,000 square foot commercial building (former Volpato auto dealership sales and repair) located at
       902 Main Street. The appellant contended that the structure was of historical significance and should not be
       demolished. The Planning Director noted that the building was not in the historic building inventory.

       The Council was again being provided with copies of (a) a memorandum dated 5/11/00 from Mark Abouzeid, the
       applicant, (b) a letter dated 5/13/00 (received 5/16/00) from Timothy Muir, the appellant, (c) Chico Municipal

       Planning Director Seidler added that at this meeting the Council had the option of (a) taking no action, in which
       case the appeal would be denied, or (b) by a least 4 affirmative votes schedule the appeal for a public hearing

        4.2.   REDEVELOPMENT AGENCY BUDGET REVIEW.

               A. General Budget Review.

                   Council was advised that the Chico Redevelopment Agency 2000-01 Proposed Budget pages were

June 6, 2000                              Chico Redevelopment Agency                                         Page 1
                   contained in the budget binder under the brown tabs.

                   The Executive Director and other staff members provided an overview of the 2000-01 Proposed Chico
                   Redevelopment Agency Budget, including a review of the Chico Merged and Greater Chico Urban
                   Area Redevelopment Project Areas Five Year Trends (located under the brown RDA “Fund
                   Projections” tab), the Operating Budget, and the Low and Moderate Income Housing Fund Summary,
                   a copy of which was provided with the agenda. Today the Council was provided with a revised copy
                   of the GCUARPA LMIHF which reflected a correction to a mathematical error.

               B. Capital Budget Review.

                   The Executive Director and other staff members reviewed the Chico Merged Redevelopment Project
                   Area 2000-01 project funding requests and recommendations as set forth in Appendix RDA A-2
                   (located under the brown RDA “Appendix” tab).

                   The Executive Director reported that further Council approval would be needed before further
                   expenditure of funds on the Old Municipal Building, that the Redevelopment Committee had not yet
                   had a chance to consider acquisition of property at 1500 Humboldt for the future expansion of the
                   Police Department, but Council could make its own decision, that he would recommend Otterson
                   Drive Extension funding be deleted from the budget until the Council met to review the project, and
                   that later today the Council could discuss various projects relating to the downtown area. The
                   Council agreed that the property acquisition at 1500 Humboldt did not need to be referred to the
                   Redevelopment Committee, and the Executive Director reported that the Police Chief could provide
                   a memorandum to Council on how the building and property would meet its 20-year needs.


               ----------------------------------
               Councilmember Guzzetti left the meeting at 9:25 a.m.
               ----------------------------------

                   Community Development Assistant Sellers explained what would be included in the Teichert Pond
                   Management Plan. Councilmember Keene and Mayor Bertagna indicated the Council previously
                   agreed that the primary use would be drainage detention. Suzanne Gibbs reported that the City
                   could apply for Proposition 13 funds from the State for water quality management plans. Greg
                   Steele, a public member of the Redevelopment Committee, recommended that the Committee be
                   provided with an opportunity to review the Teichert Pond and 1500 Humboldt projects.


               ----------------------------------
               Councilmember Guzzetti returned to the meeting at 9:45 a.m.
               ----------------------------------

                   Councilmember Keene moved to delay further action but set aside the funds on the Teichert Pond
                   and 1500 Humboldt projects until further information was provided to the Council. The motion was
                   seconded, and following further discussion, was then carried with Councilmembers Herbert, Keene,
                   Lange and Bertagna voting aye, and Councilmembers Guzzetti, Jarvis and Kirk voting no.

                   The City Manager responded to questions from Bob Best regarding the five-year trends for the
                   CMRPA. He continued with his review of revenues and expenditures for the CMRPA and the
                   GCUARPA. Assistant City Manager Dunlap reviewed the Low & Moderate Income Housing Fund
                   (L&MIHF) revenues and expenditures for the two project areas, along with a summary of the Chico
                   Public Financing Authority (CPFA) bond proceeds.

       READING

       By memorandum dated 5/17/00, Management Analyst Wood provides information on the above ordinance. The
       ordinance amends the provisions of the Chico Municipal Code relating to cable franchisees and was developed
       in connection with consideration of the transfer of the cable television franchise from Chambers Communications,
       Corp. to AT&T Corp. This ordinance incorporates changes discussed with the Council at its 5/16/00 meeting
       when the transfer resolution was adopted. The City Manager and Management Analyst recommend introduction
       of the Ordinance.

2.2.   RESOLUTION NO. 142 99-00 -- RESOLUTION OF INTENTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CHICO

       By memorandum dated 5/18/00, the Director of Public Works reports that S&S Enterprises has petitioned the City
       to abandon the portion of Montecito Avenue between East Avenue and Mission Ranch Boulevard, in
       conjunction with a boundary line modification on the adjacent parcel, to allow for future development. An
       easement will be reserved over the entirety of the proposed abandonment for public utilities, public services, and
       bicycle/pedestrian access. The Director of Public Works recommends adoption of the resolution which will
       schedule a public hearing for 6/20/00.

       If approved, the Letter of Agreement would be in effect for the period of May 24, 2000 through April 15, 2001 only.
       Further, they have requested that the City allow them to install such facilities as may be necessary for their
       operation, including a wind profiler, a meteorological tower, an 8' x 20' equipment trailer, and a private telephone
       line. NOAA agrees to pay all costs associated with phone and electrical installation and phone usage at the site.

3.     NOTICED PUBLIC HEARINGS No items

4.     REGULAR AGENDA

4.1.   MEETING WITH BOARDS & COMMISSIONS.

       The City Council scheduled today’s meeting as part of its 2000-01 Budget Calendar. A memorandum was sent
       on 2/29/00 from the City Clerk asking boards and commissions if there were any budget-related issues they wished
       to discuss with the Council at today’s meeting, and the responses received were listed below. (All boards and
       commissions were not listed since some did not have any matters to discuss with the Council.)

       A. Bidwell Park & Playground Commission.

           Present were Commissioners Glenn Dunning, Kimberly King, Barbara Kopicki, Russell Mills and Steven
           O’Bryan. Absent were Commissioners Tom Barrett and Bruce Holderbein.

           The Council was in receipt of a memorandum dated 5/8/00 from the Park Director concerning the items listed
           below.

           1.   Proposition 12. Commission members reviewed the availability of these funds on a per-capita basis and
                on a competitive basis in a variety of project categories, along with a list of recommended projects.

                The City Manager noted that the Chico Area Recreation District and Butte County would also be
                receiving funds, that it was beneficial to have the proposed list of projects at an early date, and that they
                could be included in the Capital Improvement Program and considered later.

           2.   Policy change re nexus between capital improvements in Bidwell Park & development fees. Commission
                members reported that except in a few instances, improvements in the park were not eligible for funding
                from development fees, and they wanted to discuss the concept of establishing a nexus between those
                improvements and population increases. Existing residents had a responsibility and would share in the
                cost.

                Following discussion, it was the consensus of the Council to have a philosophical discussion of this
                item at the 6/6/00 budget review meeting and then Council could decide where it should be referred.

           3.   Short and long range planning. Commission members reported on a number of projects that they were
                considering in planning for the increased use and demand for park, open space and greenways
                throughout the community.

       B. Community Transit Advisory Committee.

           Present were Committee members Diane Cooper, Linda Leahy, Barbara Shockley and Jonathan Studebaker.
           Absent were Committee members Sherri Lynn Douglas, Peggy Hargrove and Anne Patterson.

           The Council was in receipt of a memorandum dated 5/9/00 from Management Analyst Herman concerning
           the items listed below.




                                                             2
                                            May 23, 2000


   1.   Transit center. Committee members discussed the need for a future transit center at 2nd & Salem Streets
        or at some other location.

        City Manager Lando agreed that it was appropriate to have a transit center, that funds were budgeted
        for the design phase and an architect would be hired, that the 2nd & Salem site at Municipal Parking Lot
        #7 was now used as a central site for all buses to meet, more space would be needed if the site became
        a transit center, and that representatives from all cities and the County were meeting about consolidating
        all of the transit systems operating throughout the County.

        Council and Committee members spoke on the need for other agencies to participate in the transit center,
        including the County, University and other schools. Councilmember Jarvis recommended that this item
        be placed on the next Intergovernmental Committee agenda for discussion, along with a report from
        Management Analyst Herman on any funds that might be available.

   2.   Transit vehicle replacement/capital projects. Committee members spoke on the need to continue to
        expand the system to meet increasing needs.

        In response to Council questions, the City Manager indicated that the Committee could look at
        expanding service to the north to Philadelphia Square and the Airport, although prior service to the
        Airport was not successful. He indicated to Councilmember Jarvis that staff could see if there were other
        convenient locations to buy transit tickets besides City Hall. In response to the Mayor, he stated that
        there weren’t many suitable places with enough space for bus stops on Mangrove Avenue.

C. Planning Commission.

   Present were Commissioners Ross Bradford, Glenn Fry, Kirk Monfort, Larry Wahl and Nancy Wolfe. Absent
   were Commissioners Victor Alvistur and Jolene Dietle.

   The Council was in receipt of a memorandum dated 5/9/00 from Planning Director Seidler concerning the items
   listed below.

   1.   Otterson Drive extension. The Planning Director reported that the Commission would be considering
        the final environmental impact report on 6/1/00.

        The City Manager recommended that Council schedule a hearing on the matter at a Tuesday meeting
        in June. Councilmember Kirk indicated she would not be available on 6/13/00 and Councilmember Jarvis
        indicated she would not be available on 6/27/00. It was agreed that scheduling a hearing date would be
        placed on the 6/6/00 agenda for consideration.

   2.   Code enforcement. City Manager Lando reported that an hourly Code Enforcement Officer would be
        used for the remainder of this fiscal year for the weed abatement program, and that Council would be
        considering funding the position for next fiscal year during budget review. At the request of
        Councilmember Kirk, Community Development Director Baptiste reported that he would provide Council
        with copies of the complaint log relating to Code violations.

D. Arts Commission.

   Present were Commissioners Debra Austin, Kathy Barrett, Paula Busch and Mary Memmer. Absent were
   Commissioners Jack Lee, Robin Nichols and Ross White.

   The Council was in receipt of a memorandum dated 5/10/00 from Risk Manager Koch concerning the items
   listed below.

   1.   Policy regarding Commissioner attendance at conferences and training. Commission members requested
        that they be allowed to attend arts-related conference or training programs in a manner similar to other
        commissions, and that $2,000 in Transient Occupancy Tax (TOT) funding for conferences and $200 for


                                                   3
                                                   May 23, 2000


               training had been included in the 2000-01 budget that they wanted the Council to approve. In addition,
               since some of the more important arts conferences were national in nature and were held outside of
               California, the Commission wanted Council to discuss whether to retain the in-State conference
               attendance policy as it relates to the Commission.

               Councilmember Jarvis noted that since TOT funds were limited, she would recommend discussion at the
               6/6/00 budget meeting regarding other funding sources, allowing Commissioners to use Council
               conference funds, and getting Council permission to attend out-of-State conferences.

          2.   Policy regarding appointment by Commission of persons other than Commissioners to Arts Commission
               subcommittees.       Commissioners asked that they be allowed to appoint public members to
               subcommittees of their two standing committees in an effort to secure greater public input and
               participation. Each subcommittee would be chaired by a Commissioner, and its recommendations would
               be forwarded to a standing committee and then to the Commission.

               City Manager Lando stated his concern about the need for additional staff time and costs associated
               with preparing reports, agendas and minutes. Some members of the Council suggested that the
               Commission hold open forums or invite various groups or citizens to its meetings.

               Councilmember Jarvis suggested this item be discussed further at a future Council meeting. Mayor
               Bertagna recommended that it be referred back to the Commission to come back with a recommendation
               involving increasing public participation at the committee level only. Councilmember Jarvis agreed and
               suggested they seek legal counsel from the City Attorney’s office regarding the need to post agendas.

          3.   City sponsorship of Annies arts awards celebration in Fall 2000. Commissioners requested that the
               Council approve one-time City sponsorship of the 10th annual Annies arts awards ceremony, and
               approval of $5,000 in TOT arts money in the 2000-01 budget to cover costs for City staff and for printing,
               promotion and other needs for the event. They reported that Stash Distributing Company had again
               pledged to contribute $8,000 for the event, which would be used to fund the costs for the actual awards
               night event, and would be handled through an agreement with the University Research Foundation as
               the financial receiver.

               The Council agreed to consider this request at its 6/6/00 budget meeting.

       E. Parking Place Commission.

          Present were Commissioners Cynthia Augur, William Dudman, Robert Mowry, Ali Sarsour and Ann Schwab.

          The Council was in receipt of a memorandum dated 5/10/00 from the Director of Public Works concerning the
          items listed below.

          1.   Funding for design and printing of brochure to educate/inform downtown customers about the
               availability of parking. Commissioners requested that the Council allocate $7,500 for the design and
               printing of a brochure to educate and inform downtown customers about the availability of parking.
               The City Manager reported that the request would be placed on the list of additive budget requests for
               consideration by the Council on 6/6/00.

          2.   Funding for a comprehensive parking plan. Commissioners requested that the Council provide $25,000
               for a comprehensive parking plan that would explore various alternatives for making more parking
               available for downtown customers, and how these changes would impact parking revenues.

               The City Manager reported that funding was included in the 2000-01 budget for a parking structure

        F.   Airport Commission.

             The Council was in receipt of a memorandum dated 5/10/00 from the Airport Manager concerning the item
             listed below.

             1.    Revisions to Chico Municipal Airport revenue structure. Airport Manager Bob Grierson reported on
                   new FAA policies that would provide some flexibility on developing airport property and define the
                   limits of airport revenues, in order to make airports self-sustaining. Toward this end, the City would
                   establish policies that clearly define sources and use of revenues, leasing policies and rate setting
                   methodology. Prior to asking the Council to raise fees, he was completing an audit of historical costs
                   to establish the baseline revenue requirements necessary to operate and to meet future needs. Council
                   support of this endeavor would be requested in the next fiscal year.

                   The Airport Manager responded to Council questions concerning appropriate uses at the Airport, the
                   Comprehensive Land Use Plan, development on the west side of the Airport, and the San Francisco
                   Airport’s limit on the size of aircraft coming there in order to reduce airport traffic.

June 6, 2000                                       Chico City Council                                          Page 5
        2.7.   RESOLUTION NO. 148 99-00 -- RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CHICO
               DECLARING PUBLIC NUISANCE AND SETTING TIME FOR HEARING ON OBJECTIONS TO
               ABATEMENT AND ASSESSMENT OF COSTS (RELATING TO THE ABATEMENT OF WEEDS,
               RUBBISH, REFUSE AND/OR DEBRIS)

               By memorandum dated 5/5/00, Management Analyst Wood reports that the Lot Cleaning Program is
               conducted each year under the provisions of the California Government Code. Pursuant to those
               provisions, the City is required to inspect properties located within the City limits and determine which
               properties contain weeds, rubbish, refuse and/or debris which constitute a fire hazard, or may become
               a fire hazard, if not abated. Adoption of this resolution declares that noxious, combustible, or dangerous
               weeds and/or rubbish, refuse and/or debris exist on the properties set forth on Exhibit “A” attached to the
               resolution, and constitute a public nuisance which must be abated. The resolution also sets a public
               hearing on Tuesday, 6/20/00, for the purpose of hearing and considering all objections to the proposed
               removal of weeds, rubbish, refuse and/or debris, and the assessment of the cost of such removal. The
               Community Development Director and Management Analyst recommend adoption of the resolution.

        2.8.   RESOLUTION NO. 149 99-00 -- RESOLUTION OF INTENTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY
               OF CHICO TO ORDER FORMATION OF A MAINTENANCE DISTRICT PURSUANT TO THE
               MAINTENANCE DISTRICT ORDINANCE OF 1997 - CITY OF CHICO MAINTENANCE DISTRICT NO. 73
               (WALNUT PARK SUBDIVISION)

               By memorandum dated 5/18/00, the Community Development Director reports that as a condition of
               approval of a subdivision map, the Walnut Park Subdivision was required to consent to the formation of
               a maintenance district to fund costs of annual operation and maintenance of the landscaping and a
               masonry wall the along E. 8th Street and Centennial Avenue frontages, and storm water quality treatment
               facilities within the subdivision. Consent was granted but was subsequently invalidated by the passage
               of Proposition 218. As a result, Chico Maintenance District (CMD) No. 73 was initiated. The formation
               attempt failed for a lack of an affirmative vote from the majority of property owners. Since that time,
               ownership has changed and the current project proponent is endeavoring to fulfill the subdivision
               condition. The public improvements have been installed and are complete, and will be accepted pending
               formation of this maintenance district.

               The most recent neighborhood meeting was held 3/30/00 with City staff and the project proponent in
               attendance. The improvements covered by the CMD and costs per lot were presented. Neighborhood
               comments were solicited and answered. In accordance with the provisions of Proposition 218 and
               Chapter 3.81 of the Chico Municipal Code, Council is being asked to adopt the above resolution directing
               the City Clerk to schedule two public hearings on the proposed CMD. Prior to the hearings, a ballot will
               be mailed to all of the property owners within the proposed district. The ballot will allow the property
               owners to vote on whether they wish to be assessed for the maintenance and operation of the public
               facilities noted above and to establish a reserve fund for the replacement of these facilities. The
               Community Development Director recommends adoption of the resolution and that the City Clerk
               schedule the two public hearings.

        2.9.   (Removed at the request of Councilmember Jarvis.)
               MINUTE ORDER NO. 14-00 -- AUTHORIZATION FOR CITY MANAGER TO EXECUTE A DEED

               In anticipation of growth on the east side of Chico, Pacific Bell has requested a public utility easement
               of approximately 550 square feet on a corner of City-owned property on Humboldt Road for the purpose
               of installing a fiber optic unit which would provide additional phone lines to that area of the City. Staff has
               reviewed the request and determined that the easement will not interfere with future development of the
               site, and is recommending sale of the easement for $1,050 and other associated title, escrow or transfer
               costs. The Community Development Director recommends approval of the minute order.

        2.10. MINUTE ORDER NO. 15-00 -- AUTHORIZATION FOR CITY MANAGER TO EXECUTE A DEED
              GRANTING AN EASEMENT TO PACIFIC BELL AT THE NORTHEAST CORNER OF AIRPARK
              BOULEVARD AND MARAUDER STREET

               The Airport Manager reports that Pacific Bell has requested an additional easement on City property at
               the northeast corner of Airpark Boulevard and Marauder Street to extend fiber optic services to the airport.
               In exchange for the easement, Pacific Bell will install additional landscaping and irrigation in the area.

               the minute order.

        2.11. APPROVAL OF AWARD OF BIDS FOR OFFICIAL PUBLICATIONS FOR THE 2000-01 FISCAL YEAR

               By memorandum dated 5/10/00, Administrative Analyst Young forwards pertinent information regarding
               the award of bids for official publications, including a summary of the bids received for the Fiscal Year
               2000-01. The City Council has the option of awarding the bid to either the Chico Enterprise-Record or
               the Chico News & Review; however, the City has traditionally awarded it to both newspapers. The City
               Clerk recommends that bids be awarded to both the Chico Enterprise-Record and the Chico News &
               Review, and that publications be placed in both newspapers as equally as possible.

        2.12. (Removed at the request of Councilmember Kirk.)

                      developed in the County were approved. A new project had been approved by the City. After
                      reading the title, Councilmember Keene moved adoption of Resolution No. 143 99-00 without
                      approval of the Whitehall Subdivision project. The motion was seconded and carried by the
                      following vote: AYES: Councilmembers Guzzetti, Herbert, Jarvis, Keene, Kirk, Lange and

               2.5.   Resolution No. 146 99-00 re East 8th Street Annex. Dist. No. 17. Today the Council was provided
                      with a letter dated 6/2/00 from Attorney John Schaller which indicated that the condition had not
                      been complied with which stated: “Initiation of this annexation is contingent on completion of a lot
                      line adjustment with property owners to the west of Husa Lane. The subdivision engineer has
                      verified completion of this process and supplied supporting documentation.” A letter dated 6/5/00
                      was also received from James Stevens of North Star Engineering requesting that this item be
                      continued until the afternoon portion of today’s meeting. Councilmember Keene moved that this
                      item be continued until 3:00 p.m., after the Council considered community organization funding.
                      The motion was seconded and unanimously carried.


               2.9.   Minute Order No. 14-00 re Granting Public Utility Easement to Pacific Bell on Humboldt Road.
                      The City Manager indicated to Councilmember Jarvis that the easement was not located next to
                      the Humboldt Burn Dump site. Councilmember Jarvis then moved approval of Minute Order No.
                      14-00. The motion was seconded and unanimously carried.


               2.12. April 25 & May 2 Minutes. Councilmember Kirk reported that in the 4/25/00 City Council minutes,
                      item 2.6 was removed from the Consent Agenda at the request of Councilmember Keene rather
                      than Councilmember Kirk. Further, in the 4/25/00 minutes, item 4.2.D relating to the Leaf Pick Up
                      Program, she did not recall referring the matter of disposing of green waste and leaves by
                      commercial yard maintenance businesses being referred to the Internal Affairs Committee.
                      Councilmember Guzzetti moved that item 2.6 be corrected as noted, that staff review the videotape
                      of the meeting on item 4.2.D and correct it accordingly, and that the 4/25/00 and 5/2/00 minutes
                      be approved as corrected. The motion was seconded and unanimously carried.


        4.2.   BUDGET REVIEW

               A.     General Budget Review.

                      The City Manager and other staff members provided an overview of the 2000-01 Proposed Budget,
                      including a review of the General Fund and Estimated Fund Balances. The “General and Park
                      Funds Projected Trends” and the “Summary of Estimated Fund Balances” were located under the
                      green “Fund Projections” tab in the budget binder.

               B.     Department Budget Review.

                      The City Council reviewed department Operating Budgets as well as specific capital requests
                      pertinent to those departments. He noted that department heads and selected management
                      personnel were available to review requests with the Council and answer any questions that
                      Council might have.

                      The City Manager and other staff members then reviewed the General/Park Fund additives. The
                      City Manager responded to Councilmember Guzzetti about not having individual departments make


June 6, 2000                                        Chico City Council                                           Page 8
                     presentations today, about shifting the lot cleaning program from the Fire Department to the
                     Community Development Department and he and explained that he and the Fire Chief had
                     discussed fire prevention services in the Fire Department. The City Manager responded to
                     Councilmember Kirk’s questions regarding salary adjustments for reception desk personnel and
                     indicated that the Personnel Director could provide more information this afternoon for the Council’s
                     consideration. He indicated to Councilmember Jarvis that the Plaza Park Master Plan should be
                     included on the Chico Merged Redevelopment Project Area New Capital Projects (2000-01) list.
                     He also advised Councilmember Jarvis that new positions were incorporated in the budget,
                     however, in the future those positions could be identified separately. The City Manager further
                     noted that in the future staff would schedule a separate budget meeting with departments as has
                     been done with boards and commissions, in advance of and to save time at the Council’s June
                     budget review.


                     Councilmember Jarvis moved that the City Manager report on the weed abatement program and
                     the impacts thereof on the Fire and Community Development departments, and that the City
                     Manager and Mayor meet in advance of the budget review meetings, estimate how long various
                     agenda items will take, and then set a schedule for beginning the meeting, breaks and closed
                     sessions so that members of the Council could coordinate them with their own work schedules.

               toll the time to file a lawsuit until 1/31/01.


        4.2.   BUDGET REVIEW (Continued).

               C. Budget Policy Discussion.

                   The City Manager indicated to Councilmember Kirk that the Budget Policies would be clarified
                   regarding per diem and daily meal allowances.


                   The City Manager report that at its meeting held 05/23/00, the City Council requested discussion of
                   the following budget policies:


                   1.   Policy regarding development impact fees for improvements in Bidwell Park. Councilmember
                        Jarvis moved that this item be referred to the Finance Committee. The motion was seconded
                        and carried with Councilmembers Guzzetti, Jarvis, Kirk and Lange voting aye, and
                        Councilmembers Herbert, Keene and Bertagna voting no.


                   2.   Out of state conference attendance. The City Manager reported that the question came up
                        during the 5/23/00 meeting on whether Council approval was needed for the Arts Commission
                        to attend out of state conferences, but then the question also came up on whether individual
                        Councilmembers needed Council approval to attend out of state conferences if they stayed within
                        their budget allowance. Following discussion, Councilmember Kirk moved that the budget
                        policies be amended to authorize Councilmembers to attend out of state conferences within the
                        Continental United States, without needing Council approval, within the amount budgeted for
                        conference expenses each year. The motion was seconded and unanimously carried.




                   3.   Authority for Councilmembers to designate use of their individual unused conference expense
                        by members of City Boards and Commissions for public purposes. On this item, which also
                        came up during the 5/23/00 meeting with the Arts Commission, the City Manager reported that
                        he would not recommend using Council conference funds, but rather budgeting separately for
                        board and commission expenses.

June 6, 2000                                           Chico City Council                                      Page 10
                   4.   Arts Commission conference and training expense. Budget Officer Pierce reported that $2,000
                        was included in the Arts Commission’s budget. Councilmember Jarvis recommended not
                        designating a certain amount for conference expense for individual members of boards and
                        commissions, but rather to budget a lump sum for boards and commissions, and they would
                        need to come to the Council with any additional funding requests. The Council unanimously
                        agreed with the recommendation.


                   The City Manager recommended adding to the budget policies that new members of the Council
                   would be offered cellular telephones for City business and computers for access to the City’s
                   electronic mail. Some members of the Council indicated the difficulty of separating costs for City,
                   business and personal needs with several pieces of equipment. Councilmember Keene moved
                   approval of the City Manager’s recommendation to add a policy that would allow City staff to work
                   with individual Councilmembers to meet their needs regarding computers and cellular phones in an
                   amount not to exceed $600 annually or $50 monthly. The motion was seconded and unanimously
                   carried.


                   The City Manager also recommended that the City cover the cost of meals for a spouse whenever
                   a Councilmember was expected to attend a function in his or her official capacity. Councilmember
                   Jarvis moved that the City pay the cost of a spouse or guest meal for the Council-Commission
                   Biennial Appreciation Dinner. The motion was seconded and unanimously carried. Councilmember
                   Kirk moved that the City also pay the cost of a spouse or guest meal for Councilmembers and
                   Department Heads when attending local events. The motion was seconded and carried with
                   Councilmembers Jarvis, Kirk, Lange and Bertagna voting aye, and Councilmembers Guzzetti, Herbert
                   and Keene voting no.

               The Council recessed at 1:55 p.m. and reconvened in the Council Chamber at 2:05 p.m.
               -------------------------------

               F. Community Organization Funding (this item was timed for 2:00 p.m.).

                   1.   By memorandum dated 05/17/00, the Assistant City Manager provided a summary of funds
                        available and a listing of the 2000-01 community organization funding requests, the
                        recommendations of the Finance Committee made at its 04/20/00 meeting, and the
                        recommendations of the Arts Commission made at its 04/19/00 meeting.

                        Council was also provided with the following: (a) Reports from the Finance Committee for its
                        meetings held on 04/06/00 and 04/20/00. (b) Memorandum dated 05/17/00 from the Risk
                        Manager providing a report on the Arts Commission's funding recommendations for TOT funds.

                   2.   At its meeting held 05/23/00, the City Council requested discussion of the following items related
                        to Community Agencies operating budgets: (a) Consideration of changing funding source for Arts


June 6, 2000                                        Chico City Council                                           Page 11
                   Commission conference and training expense requests from Transient Occupancy Tax revenues
                   to the General Fund. Funds for Arts Commission conference and training expenses have been
                   requested in the Community Agencies Operating Budget (Page N-4). (This matter was
                   considered under Item 4.2.C). (b) City sponsorship of Annies arts awards celebration.

               Councilmember Jarvis reported that she was disqualified from voting or discussion on this item
               because of her employment with Legal Services of Northern California, one of the organizations
               seeking City funding.


               Today the Council received a letter dated 6/2/00 from Judy White, Executive Director of the Chico
               Creek Nature Center, requesting reconsideration of the Finance Committee’s recommendation of
               $44,100 and indicating that the full $60,000 request was needed to keep the Center stabilized and
               able to maintain the current level of services.


               Councilmember Herbert moved approval of the Finance Committee recommendations for funding
               community organizations from General/CDBG funds. Councilmember Kirk seconded the motion with
               an amendment to provide an additional $2,000 to the Chico Creek Nature Center. Councilmember
               Herbert concurred in the amendment, and the motion was then carried with Councilmember Jarvis
               being disqualified from voting.


               Councilmember Guzzetti moved approval of the Finance Committee recommendations for funding
               community organizations from TOT Economic Development/Tourism funding, except that the
               Chamber of Commerce allocation would be reduced by $10,000 and this amount would be allocated
               $5,000 each to the Downtown Chico Business Association and the Chico Creek Nature Center. The
               motion died for lack of a second.


               Councilmember Kirk moved approval of the Finance Committee recommendations for funding
               community organizations from TOT Economic Development/Tourism funding, except to take $2,000
               each from the Chamber Business Resource Center and the Chico Visitor Bureau and then to
               allocate an additional $2,000 to the Downtown Chico Business Association and $2,000 to the Chico
               Creek Nature Center. The motion was seconded but failed to carry with Councilmembers Guzzetti
               and Kirk voting aye, Councilmembers Herbert, Keene, Lange and Bertagna voting no, and
               Councilmember Jarvis being disqualified from voting. (Clerk not sure if Maureen reduced the two
               Chamber funding items to give to DCBA & Nature Center.)


               Councilmember Herbert then moved approval of the Finance Committee recommendations for funding
               community organizations from TOT Economic Development/Tourism funding. The motion was
               seconded and carried with Councilmember Jarvis being disqualified from voting.

               D. Capital Budget Review.

                  By memorandum dated May 30, 2000, the City Manager provided a list of capital projects which staff
                  believed the Council might want to specifically discuss.

                  Today the Council was provided with a letter dated 5/31/00 from the Bidwell Park & Playground
                  Commission recommending that the Teichert Ponds be designated as parkland and open space, and
                  that it supported a budget proposal for fiscal year 2000-01 to prepare a management plan for the
                  Ponds.

                  With regard to Fire Station #6 start up, Councilmember Keene moved approval of authorizing the Fire
                  Chief to award bids prior to adoption of the final budget on 7/5/00. The motion was seconded and
                  unanimously carried.


                  With regard to Lindo Channel stabilization, Councilmember Jarvis moved approval of $33,185 in
                  funding for the Lindo Channel Existing Conditions Study. The motion was seconded and carried with
                  Councilmembers Guzzetti, Jarvis, Kirk and Lange voting aye, and Councilmembers Herbert, Keene
                  and Bertagna voting no. The City Manager reported that he was disqualified from discussing this
                  item since he owned property along Lindo Channel.


                  Councilmember Herbert moved approval of the City Manager’s recommendation to remove funding
                  for a community survey and a youth survey from the budget, and to consider funding for them next
                  year. The motion was seconded and unanimously carried.


               E. Review of Additive Requests.

                  The City Manager’s recommendations for additive requests were set forth in Exhibit “B” to the City
                  Manager’s Budget Message and as set forth in the Supplemental Additive List, a copy of which had
                  been provided with this agenda. (These items were discussed under item 4.2.B.)

                  By memorandum dated May 26, 2000, Management Analyst Wood transmitted the Community

June 6, 2000                                      Chico City Council                                        Page 13
                      Access    Users    Group    recommendations       concerning    the   City’s   Television   Production
                      Studio/Equipment Lending Program.             Management Analyst Wood reviewed the three
                      recommendations attached to a letter from Jack Lemley, Chair of the CAUG, which included: (1)
                      Hirng a full-time Video Technician/Public Access Director who would have the responsibility of
                      promoting and operating the lending program and producing all City broadcasts. (2) Contracting with
                      an individual to serve as Video Technician/Public Access Director who would have the responsibility
                      of promoting and operating the lending program and producing all City broadcasts. (3) Obtain a
                      facility which would be utilized solely for the equipment lending program, serving as an office, studio,
                      and storage for the City’s field equipment.


                      Donald Wykoff, Rainbow Heritage, reported that he currently operated the lending program at no cost
                      in exchange for using the City’s equipment, that he had letters of support for the program from Blair
                      Snyder of the Chico Rod & Gun Club and from Angel Espinoza, that there was a lack of publicity
                      regarding the availability of the existing program, and that he did not agree with the CAUG’s
                      recommendations. Greg Bard recommended that the Council go out to bid.


                      Following discussion, Councilmember Jarvis moved that the matter be referred to the Internal Affairs
                      Committee for its July or August meeting, and that the contract with Rainbow Heritage continue from
                      month to month. The motion died for lack of a second. Councilmember Guzzetti moved that the
                      equipment lending program be abandoned for now. The motion was seconded and carried with
                      Councilmember Jarvis voting no.

                     With regard to Clerical support staff, the City Manager provided the Council with salary and

                     approval of the City Manager’s recommendation to add a budget policy that would allow up to 10%
                     additional merit or incentive pay, rather than modifying salary schedules, for individuals in any
                     department to remain as front counter employees. The motion was seconded and unanimously
                     carried.


                     With regard to the Downtown Plan, Councilmember Kirk moved approval of the City Manager’s
                     recommendation to use $25,000 that was in the budget to pull together all the prior downtown
                     studies and to study all parking needs, but to not include a parking structure study. The motion
                     was seconded and unanimously carried.


                     The City Manager reported that there were a few budget items that he might have the Finance
                     Committee review.


                     Council was advised that the budget resolutions were included in the budget binders. It was noted
                     that the Council would be acting in its capacity as the Board of Directors of the Redevelopment
                     Agency during adoption of the second resolution below.

                     title, Councilmember Jarvis moved adoption of the resolution. The motion was seconded and
                     carried by the following vote: AYES: Councilmembers Guzzetti, Herbert, Jarvis, Keene, Kirk, Lange
                     and Bertagna. NOES: None. ABSENT: None.

                     REDEVELOPMENT AGENCY. After reading the title, Councilmember Jarvis moved adoption of
                     the resolution. The motion was seconded and carried by the following vote: AYES:
                     Councilmembers Guzzetti, Herbert, Jarvis, Keene, Kirk, Lange and Bertagna. NOES: None.
                     ABSENT: None.

        4.3.   CONSIDERATION OF REPORT AND RECOMMENDATIONS FROM THE INTERNAL AFFAIRS
               COMMITTEE ON ITS MEETING HELD ON 5/9/00

                      Playground Commission and the Park Director.

                      Councilmember Keene moved approval of the Standards as recommended by the Committee. The
                      motion was seconded and unanimously carried.

               C.     (No Council action required)
                      RECOMMENDATION FOR THE TEMPORARY ELIMINATION OF THE “NO PARKING”

               Regular Agenda

               D. (No Council action required)
                  CONSIDERATION OF ESTABLISHMENT OF PROHIBITED PARKING AND BIKE LANE ZONES
                  ALONG WEST EAST AVENUE BETWEEN THE ESPLANADE AND STATE ROUTE 32. The
                  Committee (3-0):
                  1. adopted the Resolution of the Internal Affairs Committee of the City Council of the City of Chico
                      Adopting Traffic Regulation Amendment No. 670, which will establish prohibited parking and bike
                      lane zones on West East Avenue from the Esplanade to State Route 32 at such time as street
                      construction is complete;
                  2. directed staff to prepare a memorandum responding to Dr. Abbott’s request for a left turn lane
                      adjacent to the professional complex, with copies to Committee members; and
                  3. directed staff to review parking requirements for professional complexes and report back if any
                      changes were recommended.

               E. (Council action required)
                  CONSIDERATION OF PROPOSED ARTICLE 34 BALLOT MEASURE FOR NOVEMBER ELECTION.
                  The Committee recommended (3-0) that the City Council include on the 11/7/00 ballot a measure
                  requesting voter approval of additional units of Article 34 multi-family low-rent housing projects only
                  if a broad base of community support came forward.

                    By letter dated 5/18/00, the Building Industry Association urged the Council to place an Article 34
                    measure on the November ballot. Today a letter was received from the Chico Economic Planning


June 6, 2000                                       Chico City Council                                           Page 16
                   Corporation, dated 5/25/00, indicating its support for placing a measure on the ballot.


                   Councilmember Jarvis provided the Council with copies of suggested language for the Article 34 ballot
                   measure which she indicated would be based on 1% of the existing housing units in the City.


                   Councilmember Kirk moved approval of placing an Article 34 housing measure on the November
                   ballot. The motion was seconded and unanimously carried. Councilmember Keene noted that while
                   he supported placing it on the ballot, he might not later support the measure itself.



               F. (This item was considered under Budget Review of Additive Requests, Item 4.2.E)
                  CONSIDERATION OF ANNUAL LEAF PICK-UP PROGRAM. The Committee (3-0):
                  1. Recommended that the Council consider at its 6/6/00 budget meeting the possibility of
                      implementing four leaf pick-up crews during the peak leaf season, including the purchase of the
                      necessary additional equipment; and
                  2. Directed staff to provide an informational memorandum addressing (1) bike lane priorities during
                      leaf season; (2) commercial dumping of greenwaste in the streets; and (3) the placing of leaves
                      in the streets in long, narrow lines as opposed to piles.

               G. (No Council action required)
                  CONSIDERATION OF ESTABLISHMENT OF A PASSENGER LOADING ZONE ON HUMBOLDT
                  AVENUE AT HUMBOLDT NEIGHBORHOOD PARK. The Committee recommended (3-0) that a
                  passenger loading zone adjacent to Humboldt Neighborhood Park not be established at this time,
                  but that staff be directed to analyze options such as one-way streets with diagonal parking to
                  increase the number of parking spaces in the immediate area, and that this be brought back to the
                  Committee in August, after which a loading zone adjacent to the Park might be reconsidered.

               Councilmember Keene moved to accept the report and remaining recommendations of the Internal Affairs
               Committee. The motion was seconded and unanimously carried.

        4.4.   CONSIDERATION OF REPORT AND RECOMMENDATIONS FROM THE FINANCE COMMITTEE ON
               ITS MEETING HELD ON 5/24/00 REGARDING DEVELOPMENT IMPACT FEES FOR PARKS AND

               Councilmember Keene reviewed a memorandum dated 5/30/00 from the Finance Committee on its
               5/24/00 meeting, at which time the matters listed below were considered. Committee members present
               were Herbert, Lange and Keene, Chair.)

               A. (Council action required)
                  PARK FEES. The Committee recommended (3-0):
                  1. that the Basic Park Fees be $1,426 for single family, and $1,205 for multiple family residences,
                     based upon the assumptions discussed today and outlined in the City Manager and Director of
                     Public Works memorandum of 5/15/00 as directed by the Committee; and
                  2. that the Bidwell Park Land Acquisition Fee not include charges for interest.

                   Councilmember Herbert moved approval of the Committee’s recommendation. The motion was
                   seconded and unanimously carried.

               B. (No Council action required)
                  SEWER FEES. The Committee continued (3-0) further consideration of the Sewer Fees to its July


June 6, 2000                                       Chico City Council                                          Page 17
                   meeting (date to be determined).

        4.5.   CONSIDERATION OF ALLOCATION OF FUNDS (FROM THE WATER POLLUTION CONTROL PLANT
               VIOLATION FINE) TO A FLOOD PLAIN RESTORATION PROJECT ALONG BIG CHICO CREEK NEAR
               THE ONE-MILE RECREATION AREA IN BIDWELL PARK

               The Director of Public Works reviewed his memorandum dated 5/26/00 regarding this matter. On
               4/20/00, the City received an Administrative Civil Liability Action in the amount of $100,000 from the
               Regional Water Quality Control Board (RWQCB). The fine was issued for non-compliance with the order
               from RWQCB to issue permits to significant industrial users by a mandated date. The $100,000 fine
               could either be paid in full, or paid 50% in cash and 50% by funding a watershed water quality project
               approved by the Central Regional Water Quality Control Board. Work plans, time frames and goals which
               outline responsibilities necessary to meet federal requirements had now been instituted by the City to
               ensure that this type of violation did not occur again. The City was now in compliance.

               At its 5/30/00 meeting, the Bidwell Park and Playground Commission (BPPC) reviewed a project that had
               been tentatively approved by the Regional Water Quality Control Board as qualifying as a supplemental
               environmental watershed water quality project. This project was located on Big Chico Creek in the
               vicinity of Sycamore Field near One-Mile Dam, and the estimated cost was $50,000. The Council was
               provided with a memorandum dated 5/31/00 reporting on the Park Commission’s recommendation of
               5/30/00. Funds had been included in the Proposed Budget to satisfy the claim and were considered
               under Item 4.2.D. If the Council approved this project to satisfy the Action, the Final Budget Resolution
               to be considered on 7/5/00 would include modification of Capital Project No. NW 11051 to specifically
               identify the supplemental environmental project. The Director of Public Works and the Park Director
               recommended that the City Council approve the supplemental environmental project to satisfy the
               watershed water quality project portion of the Action.

               Councilmember Guzzetti noted that he asked that this item be on the agenda for official Council action
               after being discussed in closed session. He added that the public needed to be able to secure
               information from the City on the final disposition of closed session items when such information was not
               available from other sources.


               Councilmember Jarvis moved approval of the supplemental environmental project to satisfy the watershed
               water quality project portion of the Action. The motion was seconded and unanimously carried.


        4.6.   CONSIDERATION OF AGREEMENT WITH THE COUNTY OF BUTTE TO ALLOW AREAS
               DESIGNATED BY THE CHICO URBAN ARA NITRATE COMPLIANCE PLAN TO CONNECT TO THE
               CITY SEWER SYSTEM WITHOUT BEING REQUIRED TO ANNEX

               City Manager Lando reported that the City and County had been meeting for an extended time period
               to develop an Agreement to allow the connection of those properties designated by the Chico Urban Area
               Nitrate Compliance Plan to the City sewer system without annexation. The City’s committee was
               comprised of Mayor Bertagna and Councilmembers Keene and Kirk, and they could discuss their
               concerns and the issues associated with this Agreement. He added that should the City Council decide
               to proceed, a Minute Order had been provided for approval of the Agreement, which would need to be
               implemented by amending Chapter 15.36 of the Chico Municipal Code, entitled “Sewer Services and
               Fees,” and by formally entering into the Agreement. At today’s meeting the Council was provided with
               a revised copy of the Agreement outline.

               In response to Mayor Bertagna, the City Manager reported that while it was not mentioned in the outline,



June 6, 2000                                       Chico City Council                                          Page 18
               it had been suggested that if the agreement became null and void, property owners would agree not to
               protest annexation. Councilmember Keene requested that the word “island” be added in paragraph 2 for
               clarification of annexations that the City would not initiate, and wording be added to clarify that individual
               property owners could still apply for annexation. Councilmember Keene also recommended adding “from
               these or similar sources” in paragraph 8.a. regarding funding for road projects in the Chico Urban Area.




               Star Brown, Deputy County Administrative Officer, provided background information and estimated time
               lines for completing various phases of the project. She reported that the Regional Water Quality Control
               Board would be considering certain actions next week if the City and County did not reach an agreement.
               Councilmember Keene believed that part of the delay was due to the County not coming to an agreement
               on committing road funds for the Chico Urban Area. Barbara Vlamis noted that the Regional Board could
               take actions against both the City and County.


               Councilmember Jarvis moved approval of the Agreement outline with the changes discussed today and
               subject to the City Attorney and County Counsel approving the final language. The motion was seconded
               and unanimously carried.


               Supervisor Houx expressed her appreciation for the Council’s action. Councilmember Keene requested
               that the Regional Board be advised that the Council conceptually approved the Agreement. He asked
               that Council be provided with copies of the final agreement when it was available.


        4.7.   CONSIDERATION OF NOMINATING AT-LARGE MEMBERS TO THE LEAGUE OF CALIFORNIA CITIES
               BOARD OF DIRECTORS.

               By letter dated 5/11/00, the League of California Cities invited nominations from elected officials
               interested in serving in the three at-large positions (one-year term) on the Board of Directors. The Board’s
               Nominating Committee would recommend a slate of city officials for consideration by the Board during
               the Annual Conference in September in Anaheim. Meetings were held quarterly, one during the Annual
               Conference in September, one in November or December, one in May or June, and one in July during the
               Mayor/Council Institute. Travel-related expenses awee reimbursed by the League. (Placed on the
               agenda at the request of Councilmember Kirk.)

               It was the consensus of the Council to nominate Councilmember Kirk as an at-large member to the Board
               of Directors.

        4.8.   FUTURE MEETINGS

               A. The City Manager requested that the Council adjourn to 6:30 p.m. on 6/20/00 for a closed session
                  meeting regarding performance evaluations for the City Manager and the City Attorney. The Council
                  concurred.

       The rules and regulations now contained in Title 12R will be repealed by adoption of a resolution at the next
       Council meeting when the ordinance receives final reading and adoption. The Bidwell Park and Playground

       positions represented by SEIU, and to establish a salary for the position. This new job title was approved by
       Council at the 11/16/99 budget review meeting and funding for the position was approved at that time. The job
       title must be formally added to an employee bargaining unit so that salary and benefits may be established. The
       Personnel Director recommends adoption of the resolution.

2.5.   APPROVAL OF SUPPLEMENTAL APPROPRIATION REGARDING ANNUAL STREET MAINTENANCE
       PROGRAM.

       At its budget review meeting held 1/18/00, the City Council conceptually approved a staff recommendation that

       which construction will occur to allow the City to award construction bids three months earlier and to take
       advantage of the full construction season. This Supplemental Appropriation would allocate $511,660 to fund the
       2000-01 Annual Street Maintenance Program to be drawn from the Gas Tax Fund. The City Council is being
       provided with a copy of the Gas Tax Fund Summary which reflects the estimated 06/30/00 fund balance. The

       on 2/15/00 and the process to review individual alleged encroachments. In addition, citizens would be notified of
       the ability to seek permits for existing gardens. The Bidwell Park and Playground Commission and Park Director
       recommend approval of the plan to implement these policies and procedures.

       Councilmembers Guzzetti, Herbert, Jarvis, Keene, Kirk, Lange and Bertagna. NOES: None. ABSTAIN:
       Councilmember Guzzetti (item 2.3) because he had a business located in the vicinity, and Councilmember Keene

3.     NOTICED PUBLIC HEARINGS

3.1.   HEARING ON AMENDMENT TO THE CITY’S FEE SCHEDULE REGARDING BUILDING DIVISION FEES

       Councilmember Guzzetti abstained from voting or discussion on this item since future business plans could make
       him subject to the fees.

       Community Development Director Baptiste reported that at its meeting of 4/3/00 (report provided under
       Redevelopment Agency Agenda Item No. 4.1), the Finance Committee recommended that (1) a resolution
       implementing the proposed amendment to City of Chico Fee Schedule 60.010, Building Division Fees, Section
       II-A-2-b, allowing multi-family apartment buildings to utilize the Residential Master Plan process, be forwarded
       to the City Council for adoption; and (2) that the proposed amendment to the Building Division Fee Schedule
       regarding a reduction in building permit fees for buildings constructed under the “Master Plan” process be
       continued and brought back to the Committee for further review after related discussions between staff and the

4.1.   ITEMS REMOVED FROM THE CONSENT AGENDA

       2.6.   Plan to Implement Lindo Channel Encroachments Policies & Procedures. Councilmember Keene
              recommended that (a) on page 2 of Attachment A (Proposed Plan) it be made clear that individuals have
              the right to appeal to the Council during the process, and (b) on page 2 of Attachment B (Administrative
              Policy), regarding the policies for removal of encroachments, Category III encroachments, where individuals
              have 180 days to remove or file a plan for removal, language be added to extend this time if an appeal is
              filed with the Council. He also recommended that “other undue hardship” be added to “financial hardship”
              in the list of extenuating circumstances at the top of page 3.


April 25, 2000                                      City Council                                                Page 6
            Councilmember Jarvis recommended that the right to appeal to Council, and the related extension of
            timelines, be included in the opening statement so that it would apply to all categories, and the Council
            agreed.

            Councilmember Keene then moved approval of the Proposed Plan and Administrative Policy & Procedure
            with the recommended amendments. The motion was seconded and unanimously carried.

4.2.   BUDGET REVIEW

       A.   General Budget Review.

            City Manager Lando provided an overview of the 1999-00 annual budget and the 2000-01 proposed budget.
            He explained what assumptions were or were not included in the reports in arriving at the estimates. The
            City Council was provided with the following budget documents:

            1.   General and Park Funds Projected Trends
            2.   Summary of Estimated Fund Balances for all Funds
            3.   Capital Project Status Report

       B.   Discussion of Downtown Maintenance Program.

            Public Works Director Ross reported that at its 02/01/00 meeting, the City Council requested additional
            information on the costs of having independent contractors perform work related to downtown cleanup.
            Assistant Public Works Director Martinez reviewed the memorandum from the Public Works Director dated
            04/14/00 which provided a report on the bids received for pressure washing downtown sidewalks. The report
            included a summary of the bids received for two scopes of work with three possible levels of service, and
            a copy of the prior DCBA proposal. The City Council was also provided with a copy of Chapter 3.34 of the
            Chico Municipal Code, entitled "Parking and Business Improvement Area — Additional License Tax,"
            pursuant to its previous request for information regarding this tax.

            Katrina Davis, Downtown Chico Business Association (DCBA) provided Council with copies of an outline
            of the City of San Luis Obispo’s downtown maintenance program. She and Don Kidd explained what DCBA
            was currently doing, what was included in its original proposal, and the importance of implementing any
            type of maintenance program.

            Mayor Bertagna indicated that he wanted a partnership with downtown business and property owners to
            share the responsibility. Councilmember Keene noted that businesses in other areas of the City question
            why they were are not included in a similar program, and he indicated his support for one cleaning with a
            quarterly review. Councilmember Guzzetti stated he would support two but preferred one cleaning, and
            pointed out that although DCBA received tax revenues from the City, the City’s maintenance workers still
            assisted DCBA in other ways on an ongoing basis.

            Councilmember Herbert moved approval of Alternate A1 single event cleaning, including the recovery of
            water and additives, in the “core bid area”, a review of the results after all summer events were concluded,
            a 25% added cost for staff oversight, and approval of a supplemental appropriation to cover all costs. The
            motion was seconded and unanimously carried.

            Councilmember Jarvis noted the bids were based on annual or quarterly cleanings, and requested staff to
            secure bids for semi-annual cleanings. Councilmember Jarvis also requested a report on the program in
            August, along with a summary of other services and their cost that the City provided to the downtown area.
            Councilmember Guzzetti asked that any capital costs be included in the report as well. The Council
            agreed with the suggestions.

       ----------------------------------
       At 11:15 a.m. the Council adjourned to Conference Room 2.


April 25, 2000                                    City Council                                                 Page 7
       ----------------------------------

2.     CLOSED SESSION. At 11:25 p.m. the Council adjourned to a closed session to consider the following:

2.1.   CONFERENCE WITH LEGAL COUNSEL -- EXISTING LITIGATION: The City Attorney reviewed the following:
       State of California on behalf of Department of Toxic Substances Control v. Albert Campbell, City of Chico, et
       al., U.S. District Court, Eastern District of California, Case No. CIV-S-604 FCD-JFM (Airport contamination
       litigation) (Gov. Code Sec. 54956.9(a)).

2.2.   CONFERENCE WITH LABOR NEGOTIATOR: The City’s negotiator was Personnel Director Erlandson for all
       employee organizations except the Management Employees, for which City Manager Lando was the City’s
       negotiator. The names of the employee organizations that represented employees were Chico Police Officers
       Association (Units A and B), International Association of Firefighters, and Service Employees International Union
       (Units A and B). The unrepresented employees were Confidential Employees and Management Employees.
       (Gov. Code Sec. 54957.6.)

       The meeting was reconvened to open session at 12:00 Noon.

       ----------------------------------
       The Council recessed at 12:00 Noon and reconvened at 1:30 p.m. in Conference Room 1. Councilmember Keene
       arrived at the meeting at 1:45 p.m.
       ----------------------------------

4.2.   BUDGET REVIEW (Continued).

       C. Consideration of Municipal Facilities Maintenance Program.

           The City Manager reported that by memorandum dated 04/14/00 the Director of Public Works was
           recommending that a Building Facilities Maintenance Program be established and that an annual set aside
           be made from the appropriate funds to fund this program. The program, similar to the equipment replacement
           program, would provide funds for maintaining the City's investment in building facilities. The funding level
           would provide stability to the budgeting process, while supplying the needed resources to maintain municipal
           facilities in good repair. If the City Council conceptually approved the plan, a newly established fund and a
           transfer of funds from the appropriate funds into such fund would be included in the 2000-01 proposed budget
           and then considered by the Council in June. The Council concurred.

       D. Discussion of the City’s Leaf Pick Up Program.

           Public Works Director Ross reviewed his memorandum dated 04/14/00 regarding the City’s annual leaf pick
           up program, which included a review of the problem of leaves in the bike lanes, street sweeping and leaf pick
           up coordination, and a recommendation to include additional hours for hourly personnel to provide better
           coverage during the 2000-01 leaf pick up season. He added that Ed McLaughlin had provided copies of
           Vehicle Code provisions about not blocking bicycle lanes.

           City Manager Lando indicated that if approved, funding would be included in next year’s budget. He stated
           that staff was suggesting a definite time period be established for leaves to be placed adjacent to the bike
           lanes. The leaves would be picked up by the City the day after they were placed in the street.

           Councilmember Kirk observed that most residents placed their leaves in the street on the weekend.
           Councilmember Jarvis suggested that residents keep the leaves on their property adjacent to the curb, and
           then place them in the street the day before they were scheduled to be picked up. She added that street
           sweeping also needed to be taken into consideration. In response to Councilmember Guzzetti, the City
           Manager noted that a definite schedule was possible except during those times of heaviest leaf drop when,
           even with an extra crew, the City could not keep up.



April 25, 2000                                     City Council                                                Page 8
           Councilmember Keene moved approval of additional funding in next year’s budget for a third leaf pick up crew
           in the amount of $25,000. The motion was seconded and unanimously carried.
           Councilmember Keene noted that he had observed commercial yard maintenance businesses dumping leaves
           in the street on Humboldt. The City Manager stated that staff would determine if there were any restrictions
           on commercial businesses, provide a report to Council, and perhaps have the Internal Affairs Committee
           review it. The Council agreed. Councilmember Kirk suggested the Committee also discuss an educational
           program and letting residents know how and where to place leaves in the street, such as in a row so as not
           to block either bike lanes or drainage.

           Councilmember Kirk moved that the Internal Affairs Committee review the matter of disposing of green waste
           and leaves by commercial yard maintenance businesses as well as the entire leaf pick up program. The
           motion was seconded and carried with Councilmembers Guzzetti, Jarvis, Keene, Kirk and Lange voting aye,
           and Councilmembers Herbert and Bertagna voting no.

       E. Discussion of the City’s Weed Abatement Program.

           Fire Chief Brown reviewed his memorandum dated 04/05/00 in which he recommended proposed changes
           to the City’s Weed Abatement Program. The current program was administered under the provisions of
           California Government Code Section 39500, et seq. Under the current program, the City cleaned private
           property of owners not in compliance with the City’s notice to abate weeds. The property owners could then
           pay the cost of the service either directly upon receipt of a bill from the City or indirectly through a lien on the
           property. He was recommending a revised program to be administered under the provisions of Uniform Fire
           Code Section 1103.2.4 (Combustible Vegetation) which would require substantially less staff time to
           administer. Under the recommended program, instead of abating weeds on private property, the City would
           issue a citation. If the property owner could not be contacted, the Fire Marshal would file the citation with
           the Court as a complaint. Under direction of the court, a fine could be levied if the owner did not appear in
           court or did not abate the weeds from the parcel.

           City Manager Lando reported that another alternative was to move the program from the Fire Department to
           the Community Development Department under its Code Enforcement Program. In response to
           Councilmember Kirk, the Fire Chief noted that the position that administered the program in the Fire
           Department was currently vacant.

           Councilmember Keene moved approval of transferring the weed abatement program from the Fire Department
           to the Community Development Department as a Code Enforcement Program, adding a full time Code
           Enforcement Officer in 2000-01 with such Officer devoting half time to the weed abatement program and half
           time to other Code enforcement issues, and approval of a supplemental appropriation in the amount of
           $20,000 for the current year’s program. The motion was seconded and unanimously carried.

4.3.   CONSIDERATION OF REQUEST FROM CHAMBERS COMMUNICATION CORP. TO TRANSFER CABLE
       FRANCHISE TO AT&T CORP.

       At the request of AT&T and City staff, this item was removed from today’s agenda. It was expected that it would
       be placed on the 5/16/00 agenda for consideration.

       At its 6/6/00 meeting, the Council accepted the Internal Affairs Committee’s recommendation to amend

       The Council has been provided with copies of minutes for its meetings held on 5/16/00 and 5/22/00.

Item added by an Addendum that was posted on 6/16/00:

2.12 RESOLUTION NO. 159 99-00, A RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CHICO
     AMENDING THE CITY’S FEE SCHEDULE (AMENDMENT NO. 248 - PARK FACILITY FEES).

       At its 6/6/00 meeting, the City Council approved the Finance Committee’s recommendation to amend
       the City’s Park Facility Fees to reduce the Basic Park Facility Fee for single family dwellings from $1,940
       per dwelling unit to $1,426 per dwelling unit, and the fee for multi-family dwellings from $1,682 to $1,205
       per unit as discussed at the Committee’s 5/24/00 meeting. In accordance with the Chico Municipal
       Code, the City Council must approve a resolution to amend the City’s Fee Schedule to include this
       proposed reduction in Basic Park Facility Fees. Pursuant to Section 15273 (a) (4) of the California
       Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) Guidelines, this amendment is statutorily exempt from the provisions
       of CEQA. Since this proposed amendment is a reduction in fees, the public noticing and hearing

       implement the Council’s action of 6/6/00.

4.3.   INITIAL CONSIDERATION OF AN APPEAL BY BARBARA JEAN BLACK OF THE APPROVAL OF
       PLANNED DEVELOPMENT PERMIT 00-7 (WEBB HOMES) TO ALLOW DEVELOPMENT OF A 169
       UNIT APARTMENT COMPLEX ON A 12 + ACRE PARCEL LOCATED ON THE NORTH SIDE OF
       MISSION RANCH BOULEVARD IMMEDIATELY EAST OF HOLLY AVENUE

       By memorandum dated 6/5/00, Planning Division Staff reports that at its 5/18/00 meeting, the Planning
       Commission approved a planned development permit, with conditions, to allow a 169 unit apartment
       complex on a 12 + acre parcel of land located on the north side of Mission Ranch Boulevard, immediately
       east of Holly Avenue, Assessor’s Parcel Nos. 006-150-096, 097, and 098, in an R3 Medium-High Density
       zoning district and designated on the General Plan Diagram as Medium High Density Residential. The
       planned development permit was approved by a vote of 5-0-2. This decision has been appealed by
       Barbara Jean Black on the grounds that the project does not include a perimeter masonry wall, tile
       roofing, or additional trees similar to the existing street trees, and that it was based on a five year old
       traffic study. The City Council has the option of taking no action and thereby upholding the Planning
       Commission decision, or scheduling the appeal for a public hearing at a subsequent meeting. The
       Planning Director recommends that the Council not hear the appeal.

       Citizens speaking in favor of scheduling the appeal for a public hearing regarding the 169 unit apartment
       complex were Ron Coleman, Bruce Yokem, Jennifer Andrews, Pennisue Hignell, Stan Felber, Shirley
       J. Payne, Barbara Jean Black, Bertille Kerndt and Merrilie Anzalone. Greg Webb addressed the Council
       regarding his project.

       Council received letters regarding the perimeter wall, architectural features and traffic from Lillian Irvin,
       Joseph Clark, Don & Beth Hermanson, Byrnyse Wilson, Thomas Kitchen, Mark Mandel, Fran Nelson,
       Bertille Kerndt, Lucille Wright, Frances Harms, Carlos & Phyllis Marina, Fran & Leo Petronave, Gayle
       Larson, David & Janet Weilein, Ruth Terrell, Charles & Jeanne Develter, James & Lilia Crawford, Nadine
       & Scott Bernica, Bruce & Judy Yoakum, Irene Quinn, Wanda & John Miller, Kathleen San Galli, Joe &
       Ann Brendle, Kathleen & William Muldoon, Evelyn Hayes, Raymond & Phyllis Dodge, Charles & Marie
       Felver, Bob & Mary Poulin, Richard Smith, Allen & Shirlee Shaw, Terry & Nancy Raposa, Clive & Fay
       Frazier, Enid Vallgraff, John & Regina Deniz, Barbara Jean Black, Bob & Rohn Roderick, Hogan &
       Barbara Matthews, and Jennifer Andrews. A letter from Judi Merlo was handed out at the meeting.

       Councilmember Jarvis requested that the Internal Affairs Committee review code provisions for giving
       public notice of matters coming before the Architectural Review Board (ARB), and whether the Planning
       Commission can change ARB decisions.

       A motion by Councilmember Keene to hear the appeal regarding only the issue of the solid wall, tile roof
       and trees at the 7/25/00 meeting was seconded, and carried by the following vote:

       AYES:       Herbert, Jarvis, Keene, Kirk, Lange and Bertagna
       NOES:       None
       ABSENT:     Guzzetti

3.1.   HEARING ON APPEAL BY DAN HAYS OF DECISION MADE BY THE ARCHITECTURAL REVIEW
       BOARD

       By memorandum dated 5/3/00, the Planning Director reported that at its 4/6/00 meeting, the Architectural
       Review Board denied the use of vinyl siding on a proposed warehouse building in an industrial area on
       property located at the north terminus of Ivy Street in south Chico, by including a condition requiring staff
       approval of a siding material other than vinyl. Staff recommended that Council uphold the appeal.

       The Mayor opened the public hearing. Sandy Moran explained how the Architectural Review Board came
       to its conclusion to deny the use of vinyl siding on the building in question. John Linhart, also a member
       of the Architectural Review Board, spoke in opposition to the appeal as the board did not have any siding
       standards to go by and he, along with Sandy Moran, did not want to repeat past mistakes. Dan Hays,
       the project proponent, spoke in favor of the appeal. No one else spoke from the audience and the Mayor
       declared the hearing closed.

       The Mayor asked if staff could provide the Council and Architectural Review Board with any information
       on vinyl siding standards.

       A motion by Councilmember Keene to grant the appeal was seconded and carried by the following vote:


       AYES:       Herbert, Jarvis, Keene, Kirk, Lange and Bertagna
       NOES:       None

3.2.   INITIAL HEARING ON FORMATION OF MAINTENANCE DISTRICT NO. 90 - (AMBER
       GROVE/GREENFIELD SUBDIVISION)

       By memorandum dated 4/5/00, the Director of Public Works forwarded the Engineer’s Report for
       Maintenance District No. 90 (Amber Grove/Greenfield Subdivision), generally located west of the
       Esplanade just south of the Esplanade/Eaton Road intersection. The purpose of forming the proposed
       maintenance district was to levy annual assessments against the parcels within the District to fund the
       operation and maintenance of public improvements that are of special benefit to the subdivisions. The
       Engineer’s Report described the boundaries of the proposed district, the public improvements to be
       funded, how the amount of the annual assessment was calculated and how it was apportioned among
       the parcels. Proposition 218 requires a vote of the property owners to establish the assessment.
       Ballots, copies of the Engineer’s Report, and a notice of the two hearings were mailed to all affected
       property owners.

       The purpose of the initial hearing was for the Council to receive and consider the Engineer’s Report as
       well as all comments on the report or any other matter relevant to the establishment of the proposed
       district. The final protest hearing on the district had been scheduled for Council’s meeting of 7/18/00,
       at the conclusion of which the ballots received either supporting or opposing formation of the district will
       be tabulated. If the majority of votes received are in favor of the proposed Maintenance District, the
       Council may order its formation, and if the majority of votes received are opposed, District formation
       proceedings will be abandoned. At the conclusion of this evening’s hearing the Council may adopt a
       motion to either approve the Engineer’s Report as presented, modify the Report and approve it as
       modified, or abandon proceedings on the proposed district.

       The Mayor opened the hearing to the public and comments were received from Norma Gilleland in
       opposition to the formation of the maintenance district, and from Judy Hansel in support of the district.

       No one else spoke from the audience and the Mayor declared the hearing closed. A motion by
       Councilmember Lange to approve the Engineer’s Report as presented was seconded and carried by the
       following vote:
       AYES:        Herbert, Jarvis, Keene, Kirk, Lange and Bertagna

       004-208-005, from R3 Medium-High Density Residential to ML Light Manufacturing/Warehousing.
       Planning staff recommended that the City Council follow the Planning Commission’s recommendation
       to adopt the Mitigated Negative Declaration and Ordinance approving Rezone No. 00-2.

       The Mayor opened the hearing to the public for comments. No one spoke from the audience and the
       Mayor declared the hearing closed.

4.4.   CONSIDERATION OF FINDINGS OVERRULING THE BUTTE COUNTY AIRPORT LAND USE
       COMMISSION REGARDING INCONSISTENCIES BETWEEN THE GENERAL PLAN AND THE AIRPORT
       ENVIRONS PLAN

       By memorandum dated 6/9/00, Senior Planner Hayes forwarded a report on amendments to the Airport
       Comprehensive Land Use Plan that were adopted by the Airport Land Use Commission in December
       1999. State law requires the City to bring its General Plan into conformance with these amendments
       unless it overrules the action of the Airport Land Use Commission. The report explains why the City
       should not amend its General Plan to conform with the 1999 amendments, and attaches a proposed
       Council resolution listing the recommended overruling findings. The Assistant City Attorney and
       Planning Director recommended adoption of the resolution.

       During the meeting, Council received a memorandum from Assistant City Attorney Barker dated 6/16/00
       regarding corrections to typographical errors in the paragraph numbering of the resolution.

       Letters were also received regarding land use around the Airport from Dan Fregin, Frederick Watson,
       John Mendoza, and a letter from George Kammerer was handed out at the meeting.

       Norm Rosene, Bob Hennigan and Gary Brune spoke against the override in order to protect the airport
       from surrounding development. John Gillander spoke in favor of the override due to the need to provide
       affordable housing. All were in favor of updating the Airport Master Plan and the General Plan as soon
       as possible.

       Councilmember Kirk requested a report from staff on the status of the Airport Master Plan.

       RESOLUTION NO. 162 99-00, A RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CHICO
       MAKING SPECIFIC FINDINGS PURSUANT TO GOVERNMENT CODE SECTION 65302.3 AND PUBLIC
       UTILITIES CODE SECTION 21676 OVERRULING THE BUTTE COUNTY AIRPORT LAND USE
       COMMISSION WITH RESPECT TO INCONSISTENCIES BETWEEN THE CITY OF CHICO GENERAL
       PLAN AND AMENDMENTS TO THE CHICO MUNICIPAL AIRPORT ENVIRONS PLAN ADOPTED BY
       THE BUTTE COUNTY AIRPORT LAND USE COMMISSION ON DECEMBER 29, 1999. After reading
       the title, Councilmember Kirk made a motion to adopt Resolution No. 162-99-00. The motion was

3.1.     OTTERSON DRIVE EXTENSION: CONSIDERATION OF FINAL ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT REPORT

         Final Environmental Impact Report
         A Final Environmental Impact Report (EIR) was prepared for the Otterson Drive Extension project
         pursuant to the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). The Council was required to certify the
         adequacy of the EIR. Should Council approve the project, Council must also adopt additional findings
         verifying consideration of the EIR in making the decision and identifying potential environmental impacts
         and mitigations, and adopt a statement of overriding considerations.

         The City of Chico Planning Commission and staff recommended City Council certification of the Final
         Environmental Impact Report.

         Circulation Element Amendment - Hearing
         A proposal to amend the City of Chico General Plan Circulation Element to designate roadways in the
         circulation system for south Chico, consisting of the following components:

               Eastern Link - Connecting roadway between Park Avenue/The Midway and the current northerly
               terminus of Otterson Drive. Three alternative alignments have been identified for this “link ,” two
               of which include a bridge crossing Comanche Creek;

               Northern Link - Connecting roadway and bridge between the Meyers Street/Ivy Street intersection
               and the current northerly terminus of Otterson Drive, crossing Comanche Creek; and

               Western Link - Roadway between the southeast corner of the Diamond Match site at Estes Road
               and the current northerly terminus of Otterson Drive, crossing Comanche Creek.

                HEALTH/DENTAL PLAN PREMIUM FOR CITY COUNCILMEMBERS UPON IMPLEMENTATION
                OF INCREASE IN CITY PAYMENT OF SUCH PREMIUM FOR CITY EMPLOYEES

                By memorandum dated 6/21/00, the Personnel Director recommended adoption of the proposed
                resolutions and minute order which would increase the City’s contribution to health and dental
                insurance coverage for all employee groups, including the City Council, except Chico Police
                Officers’ Association - Sworn Unit, which has alternative coverage. The increase in City
                contribution was agreed to through the bargaining process with the specified employee groups.
                The cost for the increase is included as an additive item in the 2000-2001 Final Annual Budget.

                A motion to adopt the above Resolutions and Minute Order was made by Councilmember Kirk,
                seconded by Councilmember Keene, and carried by the following vote:

                AYES:       Guzzetti, Herbert, Jarvis, Keene, Kirk, Lange, and Bertagna.

         2.3.   MINUTE ORDER NO. 17-00 - AUTHORIZATION FOR THE AIRPORT MANAGER TO EXECUTE
                A LEASE WITH CHICO AVIATION SERVICES LIMITED PARTNERSHIP FOR A PORTION OF
                PAD ‘E’ IN THE HANGAR AREA AT THE CHICO MUNICIPAL AIRPORT

                Chico Aviation Services Limited Partnership (CAS) proposed constructing 17 (43 x 40 ft) T-Hangars
                on pad E of the hangar area at the Chico Municipal Airport. CAS proposed to build permanent
                hangars with concrete floors and electrical service in each bay. The initial lease term would be 35
                years, with the option for one 5-year extension. The initial lease rate of $0.24 per square foot
                represents an annual figure of $8,791.20, and would be adjusted at 5-year intervals at a rate
                established by the Consumer Price Index in accordance with Federal Aviation Administration
                policy. Because the lease term exceeds 15 years, City Council approval was required. This
                proposed lease was approved by the Airport Commission at its 6/6/00 meeting.


                A motion made by Councilmember Kirk and seconded by Councilmember Jarvis to adopt Minute

2.     CONSENT AGENDA - Items 2.3 and 2.4 were removed from the Consent Agenda and heard under 4.1.

2.1.   ORDINANCE OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CHICO AMENDING THE CHICO MUNICIPAL CODE
       TO PROHIBIT PARKING IN POLICE PARKING ZONES - INTRODUCTORY READING

       By memorandum dated 6/29/00, the Assistant Director of Public Works reports that when Title 10 of the Chico
       Municipal Code was modified several years ago, former sections pertaining to police parking zones were deleted.
       Since that time, the Police Department has had difficulty issuing citations when unauthorized vehicles park in
       police parking zones due to the lack of a code reference to cite. This ordinance adds a code section regarding the
       prohibition of parking in police parking zones. The Assistant Director of Public Works recommends adoption of
       the ordinance.

2.2.   MINUTE ORDER NO. 19-00 -- AUTHORIZATION FOR CITY MANAGER TO EXECUTE SETTLEMENT

       On 4/24/00 the City of Chico received Administrative Civil Liability Complaint No. 5-00-512 from California
       Regional Water Quality Control Board Central Valley Region (Water Board) for failure to complete the Industrial
       Pretreatment Program in a timely manner. This complaint levied a $100,000 fine on the City. Subsequently, the
       City waived its right to a formal hearing and negotiated a settlement with the Water Board to pay 50% of the fine
       and fund a water quality watershed project in the amount of $50,000. This Minute Order will authorize the City
       Manager to execute the settlement agreement with the Water Board and enter into the contract with Streaminders
       or another non-profit organization to perform the water quality project on Big Chico Creek. The Director of Public
       Works recommends approval of the Minute Order.

       By memorandum dated 6/28/00, the Director of Public Works reported that at the initial hearing on formation of
       this proposed district held on 6/20/00, the City Council heard public comments regarding the proposed
       assessments and accepted the Engineer’s Report. The Council was provided with copies of the Engineer’s
       Report, a spreadsheet showing the breakdown of the estimated costs of the public improvements to be funded
       by the proposed assessments, which include two storm drainage detention facilities, fencing, and landscaping
       and irrigation in front of the facilities, and a resolution ordering formation of the district.

       The purpose of the final hearing was for the City Council to receive all ballots for and against the proposed
       assessment district and the City Clerk’s tabulation of such ballots. In addition, the Council would hear further
       comments from property owners within the proposed district on any matter bearing on the establishment of the
       district. At the conclusion of the final protest hearing, the ballots would be tabulated. If the votes in favor of the
       proposed assessment district exceed the votes in opposition to it, the Council may order formation of the district,
       and if the majority of votes submitted are in opposition to the proposed district, proceedings on the proposed
       assessment district would be abandoned.

       No one was present to speak on this matter. Director of Public Works Ross reported that the ballots received by
       the City Clerk were 116 in favor and 34 opposed to the formation of the district.

       At its meeting of 6/20/00 the City Council adopted the Resolution of Intention initiating this abandonment and
       setting today’s public hearing. By memorandum dated 5/18/00, the Assistant Director of Public Works reported
       that due to the building of a bicycle path through the United Health Care property, adjacent to the subject
       easement, this easement is no longer necessary. At the request of the Director of Public Works, this proposed
       action would abandon the 20 foot wide Bicycle Path Easement Between East Twentieth Street and Springfield
       Drive. The Assistant Director of Public Works recommends adoption of this resolution.

       There was no one present to speak on this matter.
       A motion was made by Councilmember Kirk, and seconded by Councilmember Lange to adopt:

       By memorandum dated 6/28/00, the Community Development Director reported that this resolution would order
       the formation of Chico Maintenance Assessment District No. 93. As a condition of development of this property,
       located in southeast Chico on East 20th Street just east of Forest Avenue, the developers, United Health Care (A
       & L, LLC) (Parcel 1), Springfield Properties, Mr. and Mrs. Thomasson and Mr. and Mrs. Gliedt (Parcels 2 and 3)
       and Fogarty Investments (Parcel 4), have consented to the formation of this district for the operation and
       maintenance of landscaping and irrigation within the East 20th Street median adjacent to their properties. This
       maintenance assessment district would provide that the City perform (or contract for) the operation and
       maintenance services which would be paid for by property owners within this district. The district is referred to
       as United Health Care because it was the first facility to be built on the site. Future annual assessments would
       be paid at the time other property taxes were collected. The Community Development Director recommends
       adoption of the Resolution.

       A motion was made by Councilmember Lange, and seconded by Councilmember Kirk to adopt:

2.1.   AUTHORIZATION TO EXPEND BUDGETED FUNDS FOR DEVELOPMENT OF A REVISED DRAFT
       RESOURCES MANAGEMENT PLAN, ENVIRONMENTAL REVIEW AND PERMIT APPLICATIONS FOR THE
       TEICHERT PONDS STORM DRAINAGE FACILITY

       At its meeting of 6/6/00, the City Council included $150,000 in the 2000-01 Annual Budget for a management study,
       environmental review and permitting for the Teichert Ponds storm drainage facility, but directed that funds not
       be expended until staff presented Council with additional information regarding the proposed use of the funds
       and potential grant funding. By memorandum dated 7/13/00, Senior Planner Jolliffe provides background on the
       Teichert Ponds acquisition and the resource management plan for the Ponds. Attached as Attachment 6 to the
       memorandum is a memorandum dated 7/11/00 from Park Director Beardsley regarding potential funding from
       Proposition 13 (Safe Drinking Water bonds). Planning staff and the City Manager recommend that the Council
       authorize expenditure of up to $60,000 of the budgeted funds for the professional services and staff costs to
       pursue grant funds, develop water quality improvement options and cost estimates, evaluate and prioritize those
       options, develop a revised draft resource management plan, prepare the environmental review document and
       permit applications and coordinate the public review process prior to Council consideration. Once this process
       is completed, additional Redevelopment Agency or grant funding would be requested.

       A motion by Councilmember Jarvis, and seconded by Councilmember Kirk to approve the:

       AUTHORIZATION TO EXPEND BUDGETED FUNDS FOR DEVELOPMENT OF A REVISED DRAFT
       RESOURCES MANAGEMENT PLAN, ENVIRONMENTAL REVIEW AND PERMIT APPLICATIONS FOR THE
       TEICHERT PONDS STORM DRAINAGE FACILITY, in the amount of $85,000 (per staff’s revised agenda

2.1.   RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CHICO ADOPTING A FLEXIBLE BENEFITS PLAN
       PURSUANT TO SECTION 125 OF THE INTERNAL REVENUE CODE
       By memorandum dated 7/7/00, the Personnel Director reported that an Internal Revenue Code Section 125 Flexible
       Benefits Plan had been developed for use by City employees. The Flexible Benefits Plan would allow City
       employees to take advantage of certain tax benefits available under that section of the Internal Revenue Code.
       The cost for the plan would be shared by the City and participating employees, and the establishment of the Plan
       was agreed to as part of the recent changes in health insurance benefits. The City’s portion of those costs
       ($4,750) has been budgeted as part of the 2000-01 Annual Budget. The Personnel Director recommended adoption
       of the resolution.

       A motion was made by Councilmember Jarvis, seconded by Councilmember Kirk to adopt the Consent Agenda
       as read, with items 2.2 and 2.3 removed.

7/25/00                                                                                                   Page 4 of 9
4.     REGULAR AGENDA

4.1.   ITEMS REMOVED FROM THE CONSENT AGENDA

2.2.   MINUTE ORDER NO. 21-00 - AUTHORIZATION FOR CITY MANAGER TO GIVE NOTICE OF TERMINATION
       OF LEASE WITH THE COUNTY OF BUTTE, AND AUTHORIZATION FOR CITY MANAGER TO EXECUTE AN
       AMENDMENT EXTENDING THE TERMS OF THE LEASE AGREEMENT
       The City of Chico and the County of Butte entered into a lease agreement effective 7/01/96 for the lease of a
       portion of the first floor of the City’s Municipal Building for the purpose of maintaining offices for the County
       Building Department and the County Environmental Health Department. The original term of the lease was for
       a period of five years and expires on 6/30/01. Because of continued growth within City departments, and the need
       for additional office, training, and conference space, it was recommended that the City have the ability to reclaim
       the area upon the expiration of the current lease. In order to provide adequate time for the County to locate
       replacement office space, it would be beneficial for the County to receive notice now rather than waiting until
       December 2000. If the City does not need the space immediately, and the County is interested in extending the
       lease on a short term basis, the lease agreement could be continued for up to six month periods. The City
       Manager recommended approval of the Minute Order.

       At the request of the Mayor, the City Manager provided further clarification on what would actually happen with
       the approval of the Minute Order. When the building was constructed, the City had a five-year agreement with
       the County for the use of 1/2 of the first floor. After that first agreement, the term was year-to-year with automatic
       renewal and a 12-month termination notice. This Minute Order would give the City and County a six-month
       termination notice period and eliminate the year-to-year automatic renewal ability. The County was notified of
       the possible changes.

       A motion was made by Councilmember Herbert, and seconded by Councilmember Kirk to approve the Minute
       Order.

       The motion carried by the following vote:

       AYES:        Guzzetti, Herbert, Jarvis, Keene, Kirk, Lange, Bertagna
       NOES:        None
       ABSENT:      None

2.3.   MINUTE ORDER - AUTHORIZATION FOR CITY MANAGER TO EXECUTE COOPERATIVE AGREEMENT
       BETWEEN THE COUNTY OF BUTTE AND THE CITY OF CHICO FOR THE CONSTRUCTION AND
       INSTALLATION OF CERTAIN IMPROVEMENTS AND THE EXTENSION AND FUNDING OF CERTAIN
       SERVICES WITHIN THE CHICO URBAN AREA - removed from the Consent Agenda by Councilmember Jarvis
       for further discussion
       By memorandum of July 18, 2000, the City Attorney transmitted the above agreement. An outline of this
       agreement was approved by Council on 6/6/00. This agreement:

       (1) Authorized extension of City sewer service into three unincorporated areas, commonly known as the Lassen
       Avenue Corridor, the Avenues and the Chapman-Mulberry Area, to serve properties currently disposing of
       sewage through individual septic systems. Annexation would not be required as a condition of extending the
       service. The sewer facilities would be designed, constructed, operated and maintained by the City and funded
       from sources obtained by the County.

       2)   Provided for sewage disposal system support services to be provided by the County for all properties in the
            Urban Area remaining on septic systems instead of connecting to the City’s sewer system.

       3)   Committed the City and County to fund and complete $11 million in road improvement projects over the next
            20 years to improve traffic-carrying capability of streets and roads in the Urban Area.
       The agreement was reviewed by the City Manager and the City’s ad hoc committee (Mayor Bertagna,
       Councilmember Keene and Councilmember Kirk) established to address this subject. The City Manager and City
       Attorney recommended approval of the Minute Order.



7/25/00                                                                                                        Page 5 of 9
       A motion by Councilmember Jarvis, seconded by Councilmember Guzzetti to send the agreement back to the
       Committee and have the committee meet with the County to go over the changes and come back with a document
       that truly reflects an agreement that has been reached, failed by the following vote:

       AYES:        Guzzetti, Jarvis
       NOES:        Herbert, Keene, Kirk, Lange, Bertagna
       ABSENT:      None

       A motion was made by Councilmember Keene and seconded by Council Member Herbert to allow the County to
       be able to respond and that after they have had a chance to respond and Regional Water Quality to bring their
       concerns to the City, then we would bring it (the agreement) back for Council action.

       The motions carried by the following vote:

       AYES:        Guzzetti, Herbert, Jarvis, Keene, Kirk, Lange, Bertagna
       NOES:        None
       ABSENT:      None

4.2.   INITIAL CONSIDERATION OF AN APPEAL BY GARY LEWIS OF THE DENIAL OF USE PERMIT 00-14 (LEWIS)
       TO ALLOW CONSTRUCTION AND OPERATION OF A 24- HOUR CONVENIENCE STORE WITH GASOLINE
       PUMPS AND A CAR WASH AT 392 THROUGH 396 VALLOMBROSA AVENUE AND 601 MANGROVE
       AVENUE (NORTHWEST CORNER OF VALLOMBROSA AND MANGROVE AVENUES)

       By memorandum dated 7/29/00, Planning Division Staff reported that at its 6/1/00 meeting, the Planning
       Commission denied a use permit to allow a 24-hour convenience store with gasoline pumps and a car wash at 392
       through 396 Vallombrosa Avenue and 601 Mangrove Avenue, Assessor’s Parcel Nos. 003-210-017 and 006, in a
       CC Community Commercial zoning district and designated on the General Plan Diagram as Community Commercial.
       The use permit was denied on a motion passed 4-2-1. This decision was being appealed by the applicant, Gary
       Lewis.

       The Council was provided with copies of a letter dated 7/6/00 from Don Ball, owner of the property at 631
       Mangrove, adjacent to the proposed project, supporting the Planning Commission decision.

       The City Council had the option of taking no action, thereby upholding the Planning Commission decision or
       scheduling the appeal for a public hearing at a subsequent date. The Planning Director recommended the City
       Council not hear the appeal, thereby upholding the decision of the Planning Commission.

       Comments supporting the appeal were heard from Gary Lewis and John Gillander. Individuals against hearing the
       appeal were Kirk Monfurt and Caryn Jones.

       A motion by Councilmember Herbert, seconded by Councilmember Keene to uphold the decision of the Planning
       Commission, deny the appeal and allow reconsideration of the project within one year.

       The motion carried by the following vote:

       AYES:        Guzzetti, Herbert, Jarvis, Keene, Kirk, Lange, Bertagna
       NOES:        None
       ABSENT:      None

4.3.   INITIAL CONSIDERATION OF AN APPEAL BY THE CITY MANAGER OF A MODIFICATION OF
       CONDITIONS OF APPROVAL FOR USE PERMIT 99-28 (AT&T WIRELESS SERVICES) ALLOWING A
       TELECOMMUNICATIONS FACILITY AT 215 ORANGE STREET

       By memorandum dated 7/12/00 Planning Division Staff reported that at its 7/6/00, meeting, the Planning
       Commission approved a modification to the conditions of approval for Use Permit 99-28 (AT&T Wireless
       Services) by deleting Conditions 5 and 6 relating to power levels and annual monitoring of a telecommunications
       facility at 215 Orange Street, Assessor’s Parcel No. 004-038-003, in a ML Light Manufacturing/Industrial zoning
       district and designated on the General Plan Diagram as Manufacturing and Warehousing. The use permit


7/25/00                                                                                                  Page 6 of 9
       modification was approved on a motion passed 4-0-3. The decision was appealed by the City Manager on the
       basis that the modification was inconsistent with the City Council’s direction of 2/1/00. The City Council had the
       option of taking no action and thereby upholding the Planning Commission decision, or scheduling the appeal
       for a public hearing at a subsequent date. If a hearing was scheduled, it was recommended that it be held after
       the City Council has considered the ordinance regulating telecommunications facilities. Based on the Planning
       Director’s tentative schedule, it was suggested that the public hearing be scheduled for 10/3/00.

       Mayor Bertagna excused himself from the discussion and left the Chamber. A motion was made by
       Councilmember Jarvis, and seconded by Councilmember Kirk to hear the appeal on November 7, 2000.

       The motion carried by the following vote:

       AYES:        Guzzetti, Jarvis, Kirk, Lange
       NOES:        Keene, Herbert
       ABSENT:      None

       THE WALL CONCESSIONS -1090 E. 20TH STREET

       By memorandum dated 7/14/00 the Community Development Director reported that at its meeting of 6/20/00, the
       City Council considered this request and continued the matter for more information from the applicant, due to
       Council concerns with the sale of alcoholic beverages at a facility for youth soccer programs. By letter dated
       7/6/00 the applicant, Doug Roberts indicated a willingness to limit alcohol sales to after 3:30 p.m. Subject to
       clarification of Council concerns, it was recommended that the Council make a determination of Public
       Convenience or Necessity, pursuant to Business and Professions Code 23958.4 concerning the issuance of an
       Alcoholic Beverage Control License for on-sale beer for Off the Wall Concessions.

       A motion was made by Councilmember Jarvis, and seconded by Councilmember Kirk to make a determination of

            proposal be submitted to the Committee for review.

         E. CONSIDERATION OF REQUEST FROM SPECIAL EVENTS STEERING COMMITTEE FOR FUNDING FOR

            Steering Committee for promotional activities for unsponsored Special Events such as Halloween and St.
            Patrick’s Day, with the understanding that this would be back-up funding in the event enough donations
            were not received.

              Subsequent to the Finance Committee 's discussion of this item, the Chief of Police requested the opportunity
              to review the Steering Committee's proposal to ensure coordination with Police Department efforts. The City
              Manager recommends that action on the funding recommendation be delayed for consideration along
              with the Steering Committee's recommendations for Halloween, which are expected to be submitted to
              Council by early September.

              A motion was made by Councilmember Kirk, and seconded by Councilmember Herbert to delay consideration

              funded from the Transient Occupancy Tax funds allocated to the arts.

              A motion was made by Councilmember Jarvis and seconded by Councilmember Guzzetti to change the policy

              AYES:        Guzzetti, Jarvis, Kirk,

              and that a requirement for connection to the City’s sewer system be added for use of these funds, with the
              understanding that applicants could come before the Committee to request waiver of this requirement if

         By memorandum dated 6/29/00, the Assistant Director of Public Works reported that when Title 10 of the Chico
         Municipal Code was modified several years ago, former sections pertaining to police parking zones were
         inadvertently deleted. Since that time, the Police Department has had difficulty issuing citations when
         unauthorized vehicles park in police parking zones due to the lack of a code reference to cite. This ordinance adds
         a code section regarding the prohibition of parking in police parking zones. The Assistant Director of Public
         Works recommended adoption of the ordinance.

3.       NOTICED PUBLIC HEARINGS

3.1.     INITIAL HEARING ON FORMATION OF MAINTENANCE DISTRICT NO. 73 (WALNUT PARK SUBDIVISION)

         By memorandum dated 7/19/00, the Director of Public Works forwarded the Engineer’s Report for Maintenance
         District No. 73 (Walnut Park Subdivision, generally located at the intersection of Bruce Road, E. 8th Street, and
         Centennial Avenue). The purpose of forming the proposed maintenance district was to levy annual assessments
         against the parcels within the district to fund the operation and maintenance of public improvements that are of
         special benefit to the subdivision, namely fencing/soundwall, storm drainage galleries, and landscaping and
         irrigation along E. 8th Street and Centennial Avenue. The Engineer’s Report described the boundaries of the
         proposed district, the public improvements to be funded, how the amount of the annual assessment was
         calculated, and how it was apportioned among the parcels. Proposition 218 requires a vote of the property owners
         to establish the assessment. Ballots, copies of the Engineer’s Report, and a notice of the two hearings were
         mailed to all affected property owners.

         The purpose of the initial hearing was for the Council to receive and consider the Engineer’s Report as well as
         all comments on the report or any other matters relevant to the establishment of the proposed district. The Final
         Protest Hearing on the district has been scheduled for Council’s meeting of 8/15/00, at the conclusion of which
         all ballots received either supporting or opposing formation of the district will be tabulated. If the majority of
         votes received are in favor of the proposed district, the Council may order its formation, and if the majority of
         votes received are opposed, district formation proceedings will be abandoned. At the conclusion of this
         evening’s hearing, the Council may adopt a motion to either approve the Engineer’s Report as presented,
         modify the Report and approve it as modified, or abandon proceedings on the proposed district.

         The Mayor opened the hearing to the public. No one spoke and the Mayor closed the Public Hearing. The
         Council requested a sample of the ballot to be provided to Council prior to the August 15, 2000 Council meeting.

         A motion was made by Councilmember Jarvis and seconded by Councilmember Kirk to approve the Engineer’s
         Report as presented.

         The motion carried by the following vote:

         AYES:        Guzzetti, Herbert, Keene, Jarvis, Kirk, Lange, Bertagna
         NOES:        None
         ABSENT:      None

3.2.     HEARING ON IMPLEMENTATION OF LIFT STATION CAPACITY FEES - HOLLY AVENUE SEWER LIFT
         STATION AND ESPLANADE/LASSEN SEWER LIFT STATION

         By memorandum dated 7/13/00, the Assistant Director of Public Works explained that this resolution would: (a)
         designate the areas to be served by the Holly Avenue Sewer Lift Station and Esplanade/Lassen Sewer Lift Station;
         and (b) provide for lift station capacity fees to be assessed upon connection to the City sewer system by
         properties within the areas served by the Holly Avenue Sewer Lift Station and Esplanade/Lassen Sewer Lift
         Station. Since the fees are Development Impact Fees, they must be established pursuant to nexus reports, which
         are attached to the memorandum.

         The California Government Code required that a public hearing on establishment of Development Impact Fees be
         held and that public notices be mailed to any party who has filed a written request for such mailed notice. The
         required notice was mailed to those parties who filed such a request. The Assistant Director of Public Works
         recommended adoption of the resolution.

         The Mayor opened the hearing to the public. No one spoke and the hearing was closed to the public.

         A motion was made by Councilmember Kirk and seconded by Councilmember Keene to adopt:

         RESOLUTION NO. 20 00-01 -- A RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CHICO AMENDING

3.3.     HEARING ON GENERAL PLAN AMENDMENT (GPA 002) AND REZONE (PZ 00-2)

         By memorandum dated 7/14/00, Assistant Planner Hanson reported that at the Planning Commission meeting of
         6/15/00, the Commission voted unanimously (5-0-2) to recommend approval of an amendment to the General Plan
         Diagram from Medium Density Residential to Manufacturing/Warehousing (Grossman) and a consistent rezone
         from CS Commercial Services to ML Light Manufacturing (2031 Franklin) for property located at 2031 Franklin
         Street and 1075 East 20th Street.

         State law limits the number of times a general plan may be amended annually; therefore, several amendments will
         be brought forward for City Council consideration as one action and resolution in early fall. Planning staff
         recommends that the Council hold a public hearing on this General Plan amendment and rezone and adopt the
         resolution of intent to approve the amendment to the City of Chico General Plan. Final reading and adoption of
         the rezone ordinance will be brought forward with the General Plan amendment on a future consent agenda for
         City Council adoption. The Planning Commission and Planning Director recommended adoption of the
         resolution of intention and introduction of the ordinance. Councilmember Guzzetti excused himself from this
         item and left the Chamber.

         The Mayor opened the hearing to the public. No one spoke on this item and the Mayor closed the hearing.

         A motion was made by Councilmember Keene and was seconded by Councilmember Herbert to adopt:


         RESOLUTION NO. 21 00-01 -- A RESOLUTION OF INTENTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF

         AT 40 CENTENNIAL AVENUE

         By memorandum dated 7/18/00, Planning Division Staff reported that at its 6/15/00, meeting, the Planning
         Commission approved a planned development permit to allow 14 single family homes on 6.5 acres at 40 Centennial
         Avenue, approximately 225+ feet north of the intersection of E. 8th Street and Centennial Avenue, Assessor’s
         Parcel No. 011-010-119, in a (P)RS-20 zoning district and designated on the General Plan Diagram as Low Density
         Residential. The planned development permit was approved on a 5-0-2 motion. The decision was being appealed
         by Jeff Goolsby. The City Council had the option of taking no action and thereby upholding the Planning
         Commission decision or scheduling the appeal for a public hearing at a subsequent date. The Planning
         Director recommended the City Council not hear the appeal thereby upholding the decision of the Planning
         Commission.

         Jeff Goolsby spoke in favor of holding an appeal. John Gillander and Robb Brown spoke against the
         request.

         A motion by Councilmember Guzzetti, seconded by Councilmember Kirk to schedule a hearing on the appeal failed
         by the following vote:

         AYES:      Guzzetti, Kirk
         NOES:      Herbert, Keene, Jarvis, Lange, Bertagna

         Council recessed at 8:55 p.m. for 10 minutes
         ________________________________

4.3.     APPROVAL OF A STORM DRAINAGE MASTER PLAN; ADOPTION OF ENVIRONMENTAL FINDINGS AND
         A MITIGATION AND MONITORING PROGRAM; AND CERTIFICATION OF THE FINAL ENVIRONMENTAL
         IMPACT REPORT
         (Councilmembers received advance copies of the staff reports for this item, the proposed Storm Drainage Master
         Plan, the Draft Environmental Impact Report, and the Final Environmental Impact Report, which should be
         brought to the meeting.)
         By memorandum dated 7/13/00 Assistant Director of Public Works Hislop submitted the Storm Drainage Master
         Plan for Council’s consideration. This master plan evaluates the public storm drain improvements necessary to
         serve a major portion of the Chico Urban Area at full build out and establishes associated peak flow attenuation,
         channel stabilization and water quality enhancement facilities necessary to mitigate the impact of storm water
         discharges on the major waterways passing through the City.
         By memorandum dated 7/20/00, Senior Planner Jolliffe reported on the environmental effects evaluated in an
         accompanying Environmental Impact Report . With mitigation recommended in the Mitigation and Monitoring
         Program, all impacts of the project can be reduced to a less-than-significant level.

         The Planning Director and Director of Public Works recommended adoption of the below resolutions.

         Suzanne Gibbs asked the Council to consider some changes to the mitigation contained in the EIR: 1) Mitigation
         4.3.1 (a) should be applicable to all native trees 6" or larger in diameter with replacements at a ten to one ratio;
         Mitigation 4.3.6 should reflect all migratory birds not just raptors; and 3) Mitigation 4.3.8 should add Lindo,
         Sycamore and Mudd Creeks.

         Roger Cole stated that page 2 of 6 in the first paragraph of the Final EIR was misleading because management
         goals had been established for salmon runs on Big Chico Creek even though numeric targets had not been set.
         He added that estimating salmon runs was very imprecise. He wanted monitoring of re-vegetation for a two year
         period. In addition, he suggested that the City acquire property along Little Chico Creek.

         Ray Murdoch passed out maps to the Council regarding the boundaries for the FEMA Flood Plain and expressed
         his concern regarding the flood insurance requirement estimated by FEMA. Robb Cheal stated that FEMA would
         reconsider the boundaries of the flood plain if the City could show that it had appropriate drainage in place. Mike


8/1/00                                                                                                      Page 9 of 11
         Campos expressed his concern that there was no place for inflow into Little Chico Creek.

         A motion was made by Councilmember Jarvis and seconded by Councilmember Keene for staff to bring back the
         following resolutions with staff incorporating into the Environmental Impact Report tree replacement of all native
         trees over 6" in diameter, a two year monitoring requirement on tree replacement, a tree replacement ratio of ten
         to one, the addition of “all migratory birds” in mitigation 4.3.1(a), and the addition of Lindo, Sycamore and Mud
         Creeks in mitigation 4.3.8.
         A RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CHICO MAKING ENVIRONMENTAL FINDINGS,
         ADOPTING A MITIGATION AND MONITORING PROGRAM, AND CERTIFYING AS ADEQUATE THE FINAL
         ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT REPORT FOR THE STORM DRAINAGE MASTER PLAN

         MASTER PLAN CONSISTING OF THE PRELIMINARY STORM DRAINAGE MASTER PLAN DATED AUGUST
         13, 1987 AND THE ADDENDUM THERETO DATED SEPTEMBER 15, 1997

         AYES:        Guzzetti, Herbert, Keene, Jarvis, Kirk, Lange, Bertagna
         NOES:        None
         ABSENT:      None

         In addition the following items were referred to the Internal Affairs Committee for further review and discussion:

               1. “Floatables” reduction;
               2. Riparian vegetation mitigation - 1:1 or 2:1; and
               3. Flow control on Little Chico Creek.

         Also, staff was directed to (1) Contact FEMA regarding process to change FEMA maps; (2) contact Department
         of Water Resources regarding why gates were not installed on Little Chico Creek to allow diversion to Butte
         Creek; and (3) investigate how levee maintenance is handled.

       By memorandum dated 8/2/00, the Director of Public Works reported that at the initial hearing on formation of this
       proposed district held on 8/1/00, the City Council heard public comments regarding the proposed assessments
       and accepted the Engineer’s Report. The Council was provided with copies of the Engineer’s Report, a
       spreadsheet showing the breakdown of the estimated cost of the public improvements to be funded by the
       proposed assessments, which include fencing, landscaping and irrigation, and storm drainage galleries, a copy
       of the ballot packet mailed to all homeowners, and a resolution ordering formation of the District.
       The purpose of the final hearing was for the City Council to receive all ballots for and against the proposed
       assessment district and the City Clerk’s tabulation of such ballots. In addition, the Council would hear further
       comments from property owners within the proposed district on any matter bearing on the establishment of the
       district. The Mayor opened up the Public Hearing and no comments were received. At the conclusion of the final
       protest hearing, the ballots were tabulated. The final count was 17 against and 3 votes for the formation. The
       majority of votes submitted were in opposition to the proposed district, so proceedings on the proposed
       assessment district were abandoned. No resolution was adopted by Council.

       A motion was made by Councilmember Keene, and seconded by Councilmember Kirk to send the formation of
       a maintenance district for the Walnut Park Subdivision back to staff to redraft, in addition to holding
       neighborhood meetings and bring the information back to Council in the next 30 - 60 days.

       with the 2000 Lot Cleaning / Weed Abatement Program. In accordance with Section 39575 of the Government
       Code the cost report attached to the memorandum was posted three days prior to its submission to the Council
       for consideration. Each property owner will be billed for costs incurred in cleaning the lot. The Council will
       consider establishing assessments for any unpaid bills at future meetings. The Project Manager recommended
       that the City Council either confirm the cost report as submitted, or confirm the report after making any
       modifications it deems appropriate.

       The Mayor opened the hearing to the Public. No comments were received on this issue.

       A motion was made by Councilmember Kirk to confirm the report as submitted and seconded by Councilmember
       Keene.

4.1.   ITEMS REMOVED FROM THE CONSENT AGENDA

2.8.   APPROVALOF ARTSCOMMISSION RECOMMENDATIONREGARDINGESTABLISHMENTOF AD HOC
       ADVISORY COMMITTEES FOR ARTS COMMISSION PROJECT AND PROGRAMS

       By memorandum dated 7/20/00 from Commission Chair Paula Busch, the Arts Commission recommended that it
       be authorized, from time to time, to establish community based ad hoc advisory committees to advise the
       Commission on various art projects and programs. The committees would be limited term committees, established
       for specific purposes, which would be initially organized by the Commission, but then left to function on their own
       until ready to report to one of the two existing standing committees of the Commission. Committee membership
       would be open to all community members desiring to participate. Participation on the committees would be
       generated from press releases, display advertising and direct mailing to community organizations. Three such
       committees are initially proposed to advise on integrating art into City capital projects, the establishment of a non-
       profit “Friends of the Arts” organization, and potential arts-related uses for the Old Municipal Building. Since the
       committees would not be formally established committees of the Commission, agenda posting, minute taking and
       the like would not be required, nor would the attendance of City staff. The Arts Commission recommended
       approval of this recommendation.

       Councilmember Keene had asked that this item be removed from the Consent Agenda for further discussion. His
       concern was with the proposed art-related use(s) of the Old Municipal Building and wanted the subcommittee
       to understand that any recommendation from the committee in regards to this building was advisory only and
       would need to come before Council for final determination. He wanted the members to know that the Council may
       not want to go in that direction. Mary Gardner indicated that the committee was aware of the recommendations
       being advisory. However, she would reiterate the Council’s view on this issue.

       A motion was made by Councilmember Keene, seconded by Councilmember Kirk to have staff go back to the
       committee for more information.

       The motion carried by the following vote:

       AYES:  Herbert, Jarvis, Keene, Kirk, Bertagna
       NOES:  None

       A PROPOSED REALIGNMENT OF THE SOUTH END OF YOSEMITE DRIVE

       On 8/8/00 the Internal Affairs Committee considered (along with other traffic calming measures to reduce speeding
       on Yosemite Drive) a proposed realignment of the south end of Yosemite Drive in conjunction with development
       of the Lake Vista Subdivision to the east of Yosemite Drive. A verbal report on the Committee’s action on this
       matter will be provided at tonight’s meeting. The Council is being provided with a memorandum dated 7/19/00
       from the assistant Director of Public Works describing the proposed realignment. The Committee also requested
       for the 8/15/00 meeting (1) a report from the Chief of Police regarding enforcement of the speed limit on Yosemite
       Drive, and (2) a report from the Fire Chief regarding the impact of traffic calming devices, such as speed
       undulations, on fire equipment response time. The Council was requested to consider conceptual approval of
       the realignment tonight, after which a neighborhood meeting regarding this matter and other traffic calming
       measures has been scheduled for 9/11/00. The Committee recommended (2-0, Bertagna voting no), conceptual
       approval of the realignment of the south end of Yosemite Drive, including conceptual approval of funding for the
       project, estimated at $215,000.

       Council was provided with copies of staff reports from the Chief of Police - Michael Efford; Fire Chief - Steve
       Brown; Director of Public Works - E.C. Ross; and a letter from Gary Salberg.


8/15/00                                                                                                       Page 5 of 8
       Citizens in the audience spoke on the issue. Don Chambers spoke in favor of the realignment especially since
       radar enforcement cannot be used due to the speed being posted at 25 mph. Mark Maidenburg indicated that the
       dollars being considered should be used to address the whole problem. He was concerned that the traffic on
       Idyllwild would increase. Sean Farrel was concerned about the speeding problem on Idyllwild if the realignment
       goes through. He felt that the City would just be transferring the problem from one area to another. John Stall
       was in support of the realignment. He felt that a traffic jam was being created with the addition of 177 units going
       into the area.

       Dan McManus was concerned that the realignment wouldn’t fix all the problems but would be a start. Catherine
       Himberg couldn’t understand why the police couldn’t ticket someone going over 25 mph. Joakim Roussell asked
       the Council to do something so it would be safe to ride his bicycle. Ken Brownell spoke about Mildred Avenue
       also experiencing traffic problems.

       Council discussed the issue with Councilmember Jarvis supporting the realignment and Councilmember Keene
       opposing it because he felt the realignment was just diverting the problem to another area. Councilmember Kirk
       suggested consideration of stop signs at the October Internal Affairs Committee Meeting and for staff to conduct
       a neighborhood meeting on 9/11/00 between 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. In addition, Councilmember Herbert asked about the
       status of the speed limit signs and striping that Council had previously directed staff to complete. He felt that
       the we should encourage the traffic circle to be completed and that staff should work with the Lake Vista
       developer in regards to possible assistance with the traffic issues on Yosemite. He also felt that the City should
       start today what we can do today. Council requested a staff report with an update on the speed limit signs and
       striping.

4.3.   CONSIDERATION OF REPORT AND RECOMMENDATIONS FROM SPECIAL EVENTS STEERING
       COMMITTEE ON ITS MEETING HELD AUGUST 10, 2000

       The Special Events Steering Committee met on 8/10/00 to finalize its recommendations to the Council related to
       Halloween. If approved by Council, the Committee would begin to implement some of the recommendations
       during CSUC fall orientation later this month. In order to accommodate these time constraints, Councilmember
       Jarvis requested that these recommendations be considered at tonight’s meeting instead of waiting until
       September. Since the Committee’s meeting date is subsequent to the distribution of this agenda, copies of the
       Committee’s report and recommendations will be provided in Councilmembers’ mailboxes prior to tonight’s
       meeting. (Copies of the report were available at the meeting.) By memorandum dated 8/7/00 Project Manager
       Wood transmitted background information concerning the formation of the Special Events Task Force and Special
       Events Steering Committee and the direction given to the Committee by the Council.
       At its meeting of 8/1/00 the City Council delayed action on the Special Events Steering Committee request for
       funding for outreach material so that it could be considered along with the recommendations, and to ensure
       coordination with the Police Department. The below supplemental appropriation would allocate $2000 for these
       materials.

       Council was provided with copies of various reports and letters from Lisa Michels, SESC Chair; the Chief of
       Police; Bob Ray, Task Force Member; and Katrina Davis, Executive Director of DCBA. In addition, Council was
       provided with two maps with Street Closure Recommendations from the City of Chico Police Department and from
       the Special Events Steering Committee.

       Lisa Michels, Chair of the Subcommittee, provided Council with an overview of the what was worked on by the
       Special Events Steering Committee. Comments were heard in support of the allocation of funds, food being
       provided by street vendors and street closures by Bob Ray, Charlie Prusser, Suzanne Gibbs, Dolly Brown and
       Richard Elsom.




       A motion was made by Councilmember Jarvis and seconded by Councilmember Kirk to:

       1.   Education component that can be done without costs may proceed; and
       2.   That anything that incurs additional costs based on substance will come forward for approval at a later

8/15/00                                                                                                     Page 6 of 8
            time; and
       3.   Salem and Fifth would be closed and used as a taxicab drop off with volunteers used for     monitoring;
            and
       4.   Conceptual approval of closing 5th & Ivy with cost analysis and comparison of the number of officers
            that were needed to keep it open versus the cost to close.

       The motion failed by a 2-3 vote with Herbert, Keene and Bertagna voting against it.

       A motion was made by Councilmember Keene and seconded by Councilmember Herbert to:

       1.   Approve the education component without any costs; and
       2.   Approve the $2,000 Supplemental Appropriation for additional expenses; and
       3.   City will decide who will provide clean up; and
       4.   No street food in any areas; and
       5.   Street closures would remain the same as last year, which included closing 5th Street between Salem and
            Broadway, plus the additional block on 5th.

       The motion carried by the following vote:

       AYES:         Herbert, Keene, Kirk, Bertagna
       NOES:         Jarvis
       ABSENT:       Guzzetti, Lange

3.1.     HEARING ON SALE OF AGENCY-OWNED PROPERTY WITHIN THE CHICO MUNICIPAL AIRPORT
         REDEVELOPMENT PROJECT AREA TO LARES RESEARCH

         By memorandum dated 8/21/00, the Executive Director of the Redevelopment Agency submitted the Summary
         Report and proposed Resolution relating to the sale of Chico Redevelopment Agency owned property on
         Lockheed Avenue, between Fortress Street and Marauder at the CMA to Lares Research. Lares Research is
         interested in expanding facilities in connection with its dental equipment manufacturing business at the Chico
         Municipal Airport (CMA). Lares Research is also seeking financial assistance for the property sale. The
         Executive Director requested Agency approval of 1) the sale of the approximate 3.48 acre parcel for $227,383
         which is based on the 1998 appraised fair market value of $1.50 per sq. ft, for the proposed use; 2) a loan to Lares
         for 100% of the purchase price of the land at 6% interest per year for 30 years with interest and principal deferred
         for five years from the close of escrow, and 3) forgiveness of $5,000 of the deferred interest only for each
         $30,000/year new job created. The Airport Commission and the Economic Development Committee previously
         recommended at their meetings on 7/29/97 and 8/11/97 respectively that the Redevelopment Agency approve this
         property sale and proposed financing arrangement. The completion of this property sale was delayed by the
         removal of an underground storage tank that was found on the property subsequent to the Commission’s and
         Committee’s recommendations. The Airport Commission and the Economic Development recommended approval
         of the Resolution.

         A motion was made by Councilmember Kirk and seconded by Councilmember Keene to adopt:




9/5/00                                                                                                     Page 2 of 13

2.       CONSENT AGENDA

2.1.     ORDINANCE OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CHICO REPEALING CHAPTER 5.32 OF THE
         CHICO MUNICIPAL CODE, ENTITLED "CARDROOMS", AND REENACTING CHAPTER 5.32, TO BE
         ENTITLED "CARDROOMS"

         By memorandum dated 8/22/00, Assistant City Attorney Rock delineated the amendments that were made in the
         proposed ordinance which repeals and replaces Chapter 5.32 of the Chico Municipal Code. The amendments to
         this ordinance are required because of recent amendments to the State Gambling Control Act. Currently, the CMC
         provides that a City cardroom license will be issued after a State license is obtained, which conflicts with the
         requirements of the Gambling Control Act. The proposed ordinance provides that City's cardroom license will
         be issued prior to issuance of a State license. Additionally, City is now required to provide the State with the
         opportunity to object to the issuance of employee work permits, as provided in the Gambling Control Act. Finally,
         the State no longer allows for the exemption of nonprofit societies, clubs, fraternal, labor, or other organizations
         from cardroom licensing. Therefore, City's ordinance can no longer exempt such organizations and the current
         exemption must be deleted. The Division of Gambling Control has approved the proposed ordinance as being
         in compliance with the Gambling Control Act. The City Attorney recommended approval of the ordinance.

2.2.     ORDINANCE OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CHICO TO REZONE FROM OR-OFFICE

         adoption of the proposed resolution.

         Due to the timing of this matter, which would ordinarily go before the Internal Affairs Committee, Mayor Bertagna

         in honor of the Silver Dollar/Gold Cup races. The City Council was provided with copies of the letter of request.
          John Perry spoke to the Council about the need for the closure and the positive impact that the Gold Cup races
         has on the City. Comments were heard from Gerald N. Rogan and Anthony Nicosia in regards to the noise levels
         that the Silver Dollar Raceway causes for neighbors.

NOTICED PUBLIC HEARINGS

3.1.     HEARINGONAPPEALBYALBERTJ.LENZI,JR.OF THEPLANNINGCOMMISSION APPROVAL OF THE
         SHASTAN HOMES AT CHICO CANYON ROAD VESTING TENTATIVE SUBDIVISION MAP ON PROPERTY
         LOCATED ON THE SOUTH SIDE OF CHICO CANYON ROAD AND EAST OF VIA MORROW LANE

         By memorandum dated 8/25/00, Planning Division Staff reported that at its 8/3/00 meeting, the Planning
         Commission approved the Shastan Homes at Chico Canyon Road Vesting Tentative Subdivision Map (S 00-1)
         for 23 single family lots on 13.3 acres with rural street design improvements. This appeal specifically concerns
         the following four issues identified in the appeal application: 1) incompatible aesthetics of a concrete curb and
         gutter; 2) incompatible project density with the existing neighborhood; 3) stormwater runoff impacts; and, 4)
         traffic impacts. The Planning Director recommended that the City Council uphold the first appeal issue regarding
         concrete curb and gutter with design modifications recommended in the staff report, and deny the remaining three
         appeal issues.

         The Mayor opened the hearing to the public. Al Lenzi addressed the Council about his concerns addressed in
         his appeal of the Planning Commission’s approval of the Shastan Homes Subdivision. He felt that the drainage
         issues were not addressed and expressed concern about what this project would do to the existing neighborhood.
         He felt that the citizens were not given all the information on how many locations were used for the percolation
         tests. Flooding may happen with the buildout of this subdivision, causing adverse impact on property values.


         Martin Sorenson, who lives down the street from where the subdivision would be built was concerned about the
         drainage, that the density doesn’t match up with existing residential and how the subdivision would affect the
         overall look of the scenic road. Martha Stratton, felt that there were already traffic issues to be considered, before
         more homes were built, especially the need for a left-hand turn lane. Gary Stiefvater was concerned about the
         watershed area.

         Jim Stevens felt that compatibility with the surrounding area was considered with nine homes planned for each
         side of the street. Drainage was discussed at great length and soil studies were done at 15 different locations.

         A motion was made by Councilmember Herbert to uphold the first appeal issue regarding concrete curb and


9/5/00                                                                                                       Page 7 of 13
         gutter with design modifications recommended in the staff report, and deny the remaining three appeal issues.
         It was seconded by Councilmember Keene.

         The motion carried by the following vote:
         AYES:          Guzzetti, Herbert, Keene, Kirk, Lange, Bertagna

         By memorandum dated 8/24/00, the Community Development Director reported that this resolution would order
         the formation of Chico Maintenance Assessment District No. 503. As a condition of approval of a subdivision
         map for this subdivision, generally located at the southwest corner of E. 8th Street and Bruce Road, the developer,
         Andrew Meghdadi, consented to the formation of this district for the operation, maintenance, and future

         parkway strip around the storm water detention facility, and turf area within the storm water detention facility, and
         the entry along Lakewest Drive. This maintenance assessment district would provide that the City perform (or
         contract for) the operation and maintenance services that will be paid for by property owners within this district.
         Future annual assessments would be paid at the time other property taxes are collected. The Community
         Development Director recommended adoption of the Resolution.

         This annexation was initiated at the request of the owners of all of the parcels to facilitate sanitary sewer
         connection.

         As this inhabited (more than 11 registered voters) annexation includes properties which did not request
         annexation, the City Council must hold a hearing to receive protests to annexation. Based on the size of the
         protest, the Council must take one of the following actions: (1) Terminate the annexation if a majority protest is
         filed by 50% or more of the registered voters. (2) Approve the annexation subject to confirmation at an election


9/5/00                                                                                                      Page 8 of 13
         if the protest represents more than 25% of the assessed value of land or at least 25% but less than 50% of the
         registered voters in the area proposed for annexation. (3) Approve the annexation if the protest represents less
         than 25% of the assessed value of land and less than 25% of the registered voters in the area proposed for
         annexation. In the absence of a valid protest, the Community Development Assistant recommended adoption
         of the resolution.

         The Mayor opened the hearing to the public. Frank Deshler, a police officer with the Chico Police Department
         addressed the Council regarding concerns about the need to address staffing issues within the Police Department
         as the City annexes additional areas into the City’s jurisdiction.

         A motion was made by Councilmember Keene and seconded by Councilmember Jarvis to adopt:

         RESOLUTION NO. 35 00-01 -- A RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CHICO ORDERING

         prezoning. This annexation was initiated at the request of the owners of two of the parcels to facilitate sanitary
         sewer connection.

         As this inhabited (more than 11 registered voters) annexation includes properties which did not request
         annexation, the City Council must hold a hearing to receive protests to annexation. Based on the size of the
         protest, the Council must take one of the following actions: (1) Terminate the annexation if a majority protest is

         Assistant transmits two resolutions that will formally implement Council’s motion. The memorandum also
         transmitted an Addendum to the Final EIR that contains minor corrections to the text and responds to comments
         related to environmental issues presented during the public hearing.


         The City Council was also provided with copies of a memorandum dated 8/29/00 from the City Manager
         transmitting a memorandum from Guillon Industrial Properties offering to contribute towards funding for the
         project. If the Council adopted the resolutions implementing the project, staff would work with Guillon Industrial
         Properties to develop terms and conditions for an agreement which would formalize its offer to contribute funding
         for the Otterson Drive Extension Project. Consistent with the earlier action of the City Council, the Community
         Development Assistant recommended adoption of the resolutions.

         Comments were heard from Gerry Rogan, Helen Ost, Walter Cook, Patricia Peterbaugh, Barbara Vlamis, Tim
         Bousquet, Luisa Garcia, Steve Schuman, Emily Alma, John Merz, Jill Lacefield, Bill Helmer, Bruce Balguyen, Laurel
         Blankinship, and Roland Berger in opposition to the Otterson extension project and proposed General Plan
         Amendment.

         Joleen Dietle, Bill Brouhard, Mike Smith and Tod Kimmelshue spoke on behalf of the project.

         Councilmember Keene moved to adopt the resolution certifying the EIR in its entirety and the Resolution adopting
         the amendment of the General Plan. It was seconded by Councilmember Herbert.

         Councilmember Herbert also added that quite a few of the speakers in opposition to this project have referred to
         this land as open space and park land. He wanted to remind people that the property in question as it sits
         currently is private property. With the approval of this project, it would be retained as open space and parkland.

         Councilmember Guzzetti spoke in regards to the findings which he felt were weak and mostly about cosmetics with
         no job linkage to this project. Jobs will still come. He also felt that the Otterson Drive Extension was an issue of
         making the Industrial Park area more attractive at the expense of the neighbors.

         Councilmember Lange spoke to the overriding conditions and how the EIR addressed the environmental issues.
         Regarding the General Plan amendment for that whole area, she felt it was a positive thing that a forward thinking
         government had set aside that land for light industry. In addition to being concerned with the neighbors, Council
         should also consider the 3,000 plus individuals that would someday work there at jobs that will make more than
         minimum wage. At the same time, by approving the project and the General Plan amendment, the City could set
         aside additional land for green space.

         Councilmember Jarvis stated that this project was something that she could not support and asked for a roll-call
         vote so that her stand on this issue would be known. Councilmember Kirk said that she did not support the
         project and asked that Councilmember Keene consider limiting the General Plan amendment to just include the
         eastern link. Councilmember Keene accepted the friendly amendment.
         Council directed staff to make those modifications and bring the Resolutions back at the next meeting scheduled
         for 9/19/00 on the Consent Agenda.

         The amendment to the original motion staff bring back changes limiting the amendment to just the eastern link
         carried unanimously.

         The original motion to approve the above stated Resolutions in concept and schedule it for final adoption at the
         9/19/00 meeting on the Consent Agenda, carried by the following vote:

         The motion carried by the following vote:

         these resolutions. Councilmember Keene pointed out that “migratory birds” still needed to be inserted on page
         34, line 12.

         A motion was made by Councilmember Keene and seconded by Councilmember Kirk to adopt Resolution No. 30-

2.     CONSENT AGENDA Item 2.7 was removed by Councilmember Jarvis for further discussion and heard under item
       4.1.

       A motion was made by Councilmember Herbert and seconded by Councilmember Kirk to approve the
       following Consent Agenda:

2.1.   ORDINANCE NO. 2203 — AN ORDINANCE OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CHICO REPEALING
       CHAPTER 5.32 OF THE CHICO MUNICIPAL CODE, ENTITLED "CARDROOMS", AND REENACTING
       CHAPTER 5.32, TO BE ENTITLED "CARDROOMS" — FINAL READING & ADOPTION

       By memorandum dated 8/22/00, Assistant City Attorney Rock delineated the amendments that were made in the
       proposed ordinance which repeals and replaces Chapter 5.32 of the Chico Municipal Code. The amendments to
       this ordinance were required because of recent amendments to the State Gambling Control Act. Currently, the
       CMC provides that a City cardroom license will be issued after a State license is obtained, which conflicts with
       the requirements of the Gambling Control Act. The proposed ordinance provides that City's cardroom license will
       be issued prior to issuance of a State license. Additionally, City is now required to provide the State with the
       opportunity to object to the issuance of employee work permits, as provided in the Gambling Control Act. Finally,
       the State no longer allows for the exemption of nonprofit societies, clubs, fraternal, labor, or other organizations
       from cardroom licensing. Therefore, City's ordinance can no longer exempt such organizations and the current
       exemption must be deleted. The Division of Gambling Control approved the proposed ordinance as being in
       compliance with the Gambling Control Act. The City Attorney recommended approval of the ordinance.

2.2.   ORDINANCE NO. 2204 — AN ORDINANCE OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CHICO TO REZONE

       By memorandum dated 8/2/00, Assistant Planner Hanson reported that at the Planning Commission meeting of
       7/20/00, the Commission voted unanimously (6-0-1) to recommend approval of a rezone from OR-Office Residential
       to OC-Office Commercial for property located at 2550/2552 Lakewest Drive and 901 Bruce Road. An initial study
       was conducted for this project and a Negative Declaration was recommended for adoption pursuant to the
       California Environmental Quality Act. At the City Council meeting of 9/5/00 a hearing was held regarding this
       Rezone and the ordinance received introductory reading. The Planning Commission and Planning Director
       recommended adoption of the Negative Declaration and the Ordinance.

9/19/00                                                                                                    Page 2 of 9

       By memorandum dated 8/29/00, the Personnel Director recommended adoption of the proposed resolution which
       modifies the Management Team Pay and Benefits Resolution to add the job title of Public Works Administrative
       Manager and set the salary level for the position. The reclassification of a Management Analyst to Public Works
       Administrative Manager was approved as part of the 2000-01 Annual Budget. Funding for the additional cost
       of the reclassification was included in the final budget. The Personnel Director recommended adoption of this
       resolution.

2.4.   RESOLUTION NO. 38 00-01 — A RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CHICO
       INITIATING PROCEEDINGS TO ANNEX PROPERTY NOW LOCATED IN THE UNINCORPORATED
       TERRITORYOF THECOUNTYOF BUTTE TO THE INCORPORATED TERRITORY OF THE CITY OF CHICO
       - CHICO CANYON ROAD ANNEXATION DISTRICT NO. 2
       By memorandum dated 8/29/00, the Community Development Assistant forwarded a report on initiation of the
       annexation of a 19.3 acre parcel on the south side of Chico Canyon Road, approximately 1,000 feet east of Bruce
       Road - Manzanita Avenue. The subject property was proposed for a 23 lot single family residential subdivision.
       In accordance with adopted LAFCo policy, the City Council adopted a resolution to initiate the annexation of
       property to the City. The Community Development Assistant recommended adoption of the resolution.
2.5.   RESOLUTION NO. 39 00-01 — OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CHICO INITIATING

       annexation of parcels at 193 and 259 Panama Avenue. The subject properties were developed with two single
       family residences, storage buildings and two businesses. The annexation was proposed to facilitate the
       expansion of an existing auto dealership already within the City limits. In accordance with adopted LAFCo policy,
       the City Council adopted a resolution to initiate the annexation of property to the City. The Community
       Development Assistant recommended adoption of the resolution.
2.6.      RESOLUTION NO. 40 00-01 — A RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CHICO
          CONSENTING TO THE INCLUSION OF A PART OF THE CITY OF CHICO IN BUTTE COUNTY SERVICE
          AREA NUMBER 23 (PLEASANT VALLEY STORM DRAINAGE)
          By memorandum dated 8/24/00, the Community Development Assistant reported that City approval of the
          Pleasant Valley Estates Subdivision requires the annexation of this project to County Service Area No. 23
          (Pleasant Valley Storm Drainage) for the maintenance of storm drainage facilities. This 24-lot single-family
          residential subdivision was located on the east side of Marigold Avenue, 1,000 feet north of East Avenue. Prior
          to annexation of properties within the City limits to a County Service Area, the City Council consented to such
          annexation. The Community Development Assistant recommended City Council adoption of the resolution.

          OTHER TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF EMPLOYMENT (Unit A)”

          By memorandum dated 9/7/00 the Personnel Director reported that it is necessary to amend the Memorandum
          of Understanding (MOU) between the City and Service Employees International Union (SEIU) Unit A to add
          the new job title of Senior Park Ranger, which was created as part of the approval of the 2000-01 Annual Budget.
          The additional cost for the position was allocated in the Budget. The Personnel Director recommended adoption
          of the proposed resolution which approved the amendment to the MOU between the City and SEIU Unit A.

2.9.      MINUTE ORDER NO. 25-00 — AUTHORIZATION FOR THE AIRPORT MANAGER TO EXECUTE A LEASE
          WITH CHICO AVIATION SERVICES LIMITED PARTNERSHIP FOR A PORTION OF PAD ‘F’ IN THE
          HANGAR AREA AT THE CHICO MUNICIPAL AIRPORT

          The Airport Commission and the City Council previously approved a lease agreement for a portion of pad E of
          lease area C of the hangar area at the Chico Municipal Airport to Chico Aviation Services (CAS) to construct
          17 (43 x 40 ft) permanent T-Hangars. Based on further negotiations, the developers requested to lease pad F of
          lease area A for the purpose of this lease agreement. All other terms of the agreement would remain the same
          as previously approved. The initial lease rate of $0.24 per square foot represents an annual figure of $5,683.20,
          and would be adjusted at 5-year intervals in accordance with the Consumer Price Index. The lease term would
          be for 35 years, with the option for one 5-year extension. This proposed lease was recommended for approval
          by the Airport Commission at its 8/29/00 meeting. Adoption of this Minute Order repealed and replaced City
          Council Minute Order 17-00, approved by the Council at its 7/5/00 meeting.

2.10.     MINUTE ORDER NO. 26-00 — AUTHORIZING DONATION OF SURPLUS RADIO EQUIPMENT TO THE
          SACRAMENTO COUNTY SHERIFF’S DEPARTMENT

          By memorandum dated 8/17/00, the Chief of Police reported that due to the recent upgrade of radio equipment
          in the Police Department’s Communications Center there are various control panels, CPU’s, video monitors and
          miscellaneous parts manufactured by Motorola that were no longer usable by the City. The Sacramento County
          Sheriff’s Department has such a system and has requested that the City donate the parts to their agency.
          Section 3.08.090 of the Chico Municipal Code provides authority for the Purchasing Officer to sell surplus
          property based on competitive bids without further Council action, and this type of request normally would be
          handled under those provisions. However, due to the minimal value of the items and the fact that the equipment
          is only of practical use to another public safety entity, staff requested that the City Council declare the
          equipment to be surplus property and authorize the City Manager to donate it to the Sacramento County
          Sheriff’s Department. The Chief of Police recommended approval of the Minute Order.

          By memorandum dated 8/23/00, the Park Director forwarded this Supplemental Appropriation in the amount of
          $3,000 for rehabilitation of 43 planters in the Downtown Parking & Business Improvement Area, and Minute
          Order No. 27-00 authorizing an agreement with the DCBA to perform the work. At its meeting of 9/7/00 the
          Finance Committee recommended approval of the Supplemental Appropriation, and the Park Director
          recommended approval of the Minute Order.

2.12.     APPROVAL OF SUPPLEMENTAL APPROPRIATION FOR GABION REPAIR ON LITTLE CHICO CREEK

          The Director of Public Works reported that the gabions along Little Chico Creek opposite the Hignell
          development east of Fir Street have failed. Although the 2000-01 budget includes funding to replace the failed
          gabions, it was determined during the design phase of the project that it was necessary to install another row
          of gabions at a greater depth to prevent further erosion, thereby requiring considerably more excavation and
          backfill of earth. The estimated construction costs for the additional work would exceed the amount budgeted
          by $17,500. The proposed supplemental appropriation would allocate $17,500 from the General Fund (001). At
          its meeting of 9/7/00 the Finance Committee recommended approval of the supplemental appropriation.


9/19/00                                                                                                    Page 4 of 9
          The motion to approve the Consent Agenda as read, carried by the following vote:
          AYES: Herbert, Jarvis, Keene, Kirk, Lange, Bertagna
          NOES: None

3.        NOTICED PUBLIC HEARINGS

3.1.      HEARING ON FORMATION OF MAINTENANCE DISTRICT NO. 89, HERITAGE OAK - PHASE 2

          By memorandum dated 8/23/00, the Community Development Director reported that this resolution would order
          the formation of Chico Maintenance Assessment District No. 89. As a condition of approval of a subdivision
          map for this subdivision, generally located east of SHR 99 on the west side of Springfield Drive, the developer,
          Epick Homes/Pete Giampaoli, consented to the formation of this district for the operation, maintenance, and
          future replacement of the stamped concrete entry, landscaping and irrigation of the median within Springfield
          Drive and along Springfield Drive adjacent to the subdivision. This maintenance assessment district would
          provide that the City perform (or contract for) the operation and maintenance services which will be paid for by
          property owners within this district. Future annual assessments would be paid at the time other property taxes
          are collected. The Community Development Director recommended adoption of the Resolution. The Mayor
          opened the hearing to the public. No one spoke on this issue.

          A motion was made by Councilmember Keene and seconded by Councilmember Herbert to adopt:

          RESOLUTION NO. 44 00-01 -- A RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CHICO ORDERING
          FORMATION OF A MAINTENANCE DISTRICT PURSUANT TO THE MAINTENANCE ASSESSMENT
          DISTRICT ORDINANCE OF 1997 (MAINTENANCE ASSESSMENT DISTRICT NO. 89 — HERITAGE OAK -

3.2.      HEARING ON CITIZENS OPTION FOR PUBLIC SAFETY (COPS) PROGRAM FUNDING AND APPROVAL
          OF SUPPLEMENTAL APPROPRIATION FROM THE (COPS) PROGRAM FOR MINOR CAPITAL
          PROJECTS

          By memorandum dated 8/17/00, the Chief of Police reported that for the fifth consecutive year the State of
          California has appropriated funds for the Citizens Option for Public Safety (COPS) program. The COPS program
          provides funding for local law enforcement and public safety purposes to be distributed to counties throughout
          the state based on population. This year the Legislature approved funding for this program through the 2003-04
          fiscal year and this hearing is required by State law prior to receiving COPS funds. Funding for two police
          officers was included in the 2000-01 budget subject to tonight’s hearing. In addition, by memorandum dated
          8/24/00, the Chief of Police transmitted a supplemental appropriation in the amount of $12,500 to fund minor
          capital projects from the Supplemental Law Enforcement Services Fund (099). At its meeting of 9/7/00 the
          Finance Committee recommended approval of the supplemental appropriation. At the conclusion of tonight’s
          hearing, the City Council approved, by motion, the proposed use for the COPS funding by confirming the
          funding request for the two police officers as budgeted and by approving the supplemental appropriation for
          the minor capital projects. The Mayor opened the hearing to the public. No one spoke on this issue.

          A motion was made by Councilmember Jarvis and seconded by Councilmember Keene to approve the program.

          CROSSING ALIGNMENT AS A COLLECTOR ROUTE AND REQUIRING COMPLIANCE WITH ALL
          APPLICABLE MITIGATION MEASURES AT TIME OF PROJECT DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION

          This item was pulled by Councilmember Jarvis so a letter from Gary Williams, Butte County Air Quality
          Management District addressed to Community Development Assistant Sellers regarding potential remediation
          actions regarding ground water contamination in the area of the proposed Otterson Drive Extension project,
          could be read into the record.

          City Manager Lando stated that there is contamination along the Midway caused by underground leaks from
          petroleum businesses. Staff does not believe the contamination would impact the proposed Otterson Drive
          Extension.
          Following the public hearing on 7/5/00, the City Council adopted a motion of intent to certify the adequacy of
          the Final Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for the Otterson Drive Extension Project, making findings regarding
          environmental effects and project alternatives, and adopting a statement of overriding considerations; and
          approved the General Plan Transportation Element and Diagram to designate the Otterson Drive Extension
          Eastern Link - Mid Creek Crossing as a two lane collector route. Two resolutions to formally implement Council’s
          motion were presented at the 9/5/00 meeting. Following Council discussion at that meeting, a motion was
          adopted directing staff to further revise the resolutions to clarify that only the Eastern Link - Mid Creek Crossing
          was the subject of Council action, including EIR certification. By memorandum dated 9/11/00, the Community
          Development Assistant transmitted the revised resolutions and explanation of the revisions. Consistent with
          the most recent action of the City Council, the Community Development Assistant recommended adoption of
          the resolutions.

          A motion was made by Councilmember Keene and seconded by Councilmember Lange to adopt Resolution No.
          41 00-01 and Resolution No. 42 00-01 as amended by the Community Development’s staff report.




          The motion carried by the following vote:

4.3.      CONSIDERATION OF POTENTIAL USE OF THE BIDWELL RANCH PROPERTY - this item was moved up
          on the agenda and heard before item 4.2 at the request of Councilmember Jarvis

          Councilmembers Jarvis and Kirk requested a discussion of the City Manager’s memorandum dated 8/21/00
          regarding the potential use of the Bidwell Ranch property. Councilmember Jarvis also asked this matter to be
          scheduled for consideration pursuant to the request of the Stop Bidwell Ranch Committee in its letter to her
          dated 8/3/00, copies of which were provided to the City Council.

          In the spring of 1999, the City Council discussed a recommendation from the City Manager to set aside the
          Bidwell Ranch property for wetland mitigation, airport overflight area, and other designated non-residential uses.


9/19/00                                                                                                       Page 6 of 9
          In discussing this recommendation, the City Council requested additional information regarding the following
          points:

           a)   Cost estimates to develop the property and potential revenue from development uses.
           b)   The suitability and appropriateness of using the property for wetland mitigation and estimated revenue
                from such a use.
           c)   Appropriateness and funding sources for designating the property as an overflight area and all clear zone.
           d)   Total anticipated revenue which could be derived from the property versus the acquisition cost.

           The 8/21/00 memorandum addressed these issues. Council received letters from Betty Volker and Susan
           Borzage in support of designating the property as “open space.”

           Comments were heard from Gloria Bettencourt in support of making this land part of Bidwell Park. John
           Gillander indicated that if Council determined to designate this land as parkland, he felt that the Council should
           identify where other housing developments could be built in order to meet current and future affordable
           housing needs within the community.

           ----------------------------------------
           Council recessed at 9:35 p.m. for a ten minute break
           ----------------------------------------

           Shelly Jensen requested Council to consider renaming the Bidwell Ranch. Carl Johnson spoke about his
           concern of a clear zone for aviation in order to protect our airport and in the interest of public safety. Neil Farrell
           also felt that there should not be any development on this land, and if need be, a referendum or zoning initiative
           process would be explored. Norman Rosene, Chair of the County Airport Land Use Commission (ALUC)
           encouraged the Council to protect the land for a departure corridor for air tankers during fire season. John
           Luvaas addressed Council about the cost of a referendum or initiative and how those dollars could be utilized
           for roadway improvements. Walter Cook, John Merz and Belva Dean commented that this land was open space
           and should be retained as such. Darrel Wilson, Past President from the upper Ridge area expressed concern
           over maintaining the land as open space for fire protection for the Ridge. Charles Eisley also spoke in support
           of leaving a clear zone for air tankers. Jerry Olio encouraged staff to look for a discretionary grant for wetland
           preservation.

           A motion was made by Councilmember Jarvis and seconded by Councilmember Kirk to direct staff to apply for
           a discretionary grant from FAA and to determine whether such a grant, if received, would restrict public access
           to the land. Staff was also directed to continue to explore at the wetland mitigation.

           Councilmember Keene expressed his concern over keeping the land as open space after paying millions for the
           property. The housing units that were planned for that land would have to be found somewhere else and
           removing this land from the available inventory may encourage urban sprawl. He added that he was willing to
           support Councilmember Jarvis’ motion. However, he believed that there was a series of concerns that would
           need to be addressed at a later date.

           The motion carried by the following vote:
           AYES:          Herbert, Jarvis, Keene, Kirk, Lange, Bertagna
           NOES:          None

4.2.       CONSIDERATION OF FINANCE COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS FROM ITS MEETING HELD 8/28/00
           REGARDING COMMUNITY ORGANIZATION FUNDING LEVELS AND POLICIES - at the request of
           Councilmember Jarvis, this item was heard after item 4.3.

          By memorandum dated 8/31/00, the Finance Committee provided a report on its meeting held 8/28/00 at which
          time the Committee made the below recommendations regarding Community Organization funding levels and
          policies. The Council was also provided with copies of the memorandum dated 8/18/00 from the City Manager
          which the Committee and community organizations received for the 8/28/00 meeting.

          Finance Committee recommendations:

          1. For those organizations funded with general/CDBG funds, the Committee recommended:

             a. That the FY 2001-02 general fund/CDBG funding applications be used by the Committee to make
                recommendations to the Council which would identify those organizations which are considered to
                provide essential City services and should be eligible for ongoing funding commitments from the City,
                and identifying those applicants which would be eligible for one-time funding for seed money or capital
                costs. Council concurred with the Committee recommendation with both Councilmember Jarvis and
                Guzzetti absent.

             b. That a $20,000 maximum funding limit be set for future general fund/CDBG applications to discourage
                operational dependency on City funding, except for those organizations which already exceed $20,000;
                no required minimum application amount was recommended by the Committee. Council concurred that
                $20,000 would be used as a guideline and those agencies that go above that amount would have to justify
                the higher request. It was also requested by Council that guidelines should be included with the
                application for funding.

          2. That those organizations which are Transit Occupancy Tax (TOT)-funded and provide essential City services
             (such as economic development services) be eligible for a two-year funding commitment, and allowed to enter
             into two-year non-exclusive service contracts, with Council reviewing the funding level and continuation of
             the service contract every two years.

             Judy White from the Nature Center urged Council to consider the automatic funding. Council concurred, with
             Councilmembers Jarvis and Guzzetti absent, that those agencies that provide essential City services would
             be allowed to enter into two-year non-exclusive service contracts,

          3. That organizations be limited to submitting one application per program. Council agreed that the committee’s
             recommendation should be accepted. Both Councilmembers Jarvis and Guzzetti were absent from the
             meeting.
          4. That any policy changes be phased in over time, with implementation in the FY 2002-03 funding cycle so that
             any organizations historically funded by the City may have adequate time to make any necessary
             adjustments.

4.     REGULAR AGENDA

4.1.   JOINT MEETING WITH THE REGIONAL WATER QUALITY CONTROL BOARD REGARDING NITRATE
       ISSUES

       Ron Dykstra of the Regional Water Quality Control Board had requested for the 9/26/00 meeting, discussion of
       the following:

       A. The Chico Area septic prohibition: City Manager Lando presented a summary of the nitrate issue(s) that
          were being addressed by both the City of Chico and the County. Originally, the City and County worked to
          resolve these issues through annexation of the properties needing sewer hookup. Now the two entities were
          working on a more comprehensive plan. It was estimated that 3600 homes located in the County were still
          on septic, 2100 of those in hot spots. City staff had been in constant communication with the Water Board
          (Ron Dykstra.)

           The City Manager introduced Ron Dykstra and Gary Carlton from the Regional Water Quality Board. Ron
           Dykstra brought the Council up to date on the nitrate issue from their perspective. According to Ron
           Dykstra, the City and County were many years past the prohibition date.         There is a very serious
           groundwater nitrate contamination problem, with many of the Cal Water wells showing traces of nitrate. One
           well was taken out due to the contamination. He stated that the Water Board was very concerned with the
           overall groundwater situation.

       B. City and County responsibility for compliance: Ron Dykstra indicated to the Council that a definitive plan
          from the City and County was needed by February 2001. The plan also needed to provide for a program to
          oversee the units that are not going to hook up to the sewer. They would prefer that the City and County
          give them a plan instead of having to look at two different ones. City Attorney Frank indicated that there was
          not a firm commitment from the county to monitor the rest of the septic tanks that are allowed to remain.

           City Manager Lando asked Ron Dykstra for an explanation as to what the Regional Water Board viewed the
           City’s role to be in this process. Ron Dykstra responded that the Water Board was working with staff counsel
           on the authority that makes it the responsibility of the City. However, it is part of the Water Code that an
           agency may have the responsibility if it is permitting the discharge of waste. He also said that while this was
           a broad interpretation, they do believe the City is permitting this discharge because the City does have some
           control over it.

           Councilmember Guzzetti indicated that there may be some members of the Council who thought that the City
           does have a responsibility and commented that even prior Councils had tried to coordinate this very issue.
           He was distressed that the City was still asking “Why us?”. It was the same question that was asked 10-20
           years ago. He asked the City Manager why staff wanted to be selective. When someone annexes into the
           City, why does the City press every other environmental law, every jurisidictional law, and penal code?
           These people are part of the City and face the same responsibilities everyone else does. This was a situation
           where there might be a contamination problem.

9/26/00                                                                                                   Page 1 of 2
           City Manager Lando expressed that the City wanted to cooperate and in fact, currently, when allowing people
           to annex in, they do not have to come up to City standards and are allowed to keep whichever nonconforming
           uses they have at the time of annexation. The City Manager was concerned about fines being assessed
           against the City when landowners do not want to sewer. He did not want to minimize the seriousness of the
           issue.

           As far as the plan, City staff has been meeting with the County. There are only a couple of points where
           agreement hadn’t yet been reached. It should be possible to finalize the work with staff by the end of
           October and schedule a meeting with the committee in November.

           Councilmember Jarvis asked if the City had to adopt the County’s plan. Ron Dykstra said the City does not
           have to adopt that plan. However, some type of plan, along with a definitive time schedule for the work to
           be completed needed to be adopted and in place by the February 2001 date. Ron Dykstra stated that the
           County plan doesn’t go far enough, because it doesn’t include specifics and time lines regarding the
           oversight monitoring plan. In addition wells, additional pumping, and community outreach all need to be
           addressed.

           Eric Miller, Butte County, stated that they were working on a state revolving loan fund, engineering design,
           and preparing an environmental impact report. Staff was also working on the development of a revenue plan
           for onsite and offsite costs and hoping to submit their loan package early next year. They need to get to a
           point where it is sequenced and then meet with the Council. He stated that they were definitely making
           progress working with City staff and they anticipate that they will be able to meet the Regional Water Board’s
           February deadline.

           City Manager Lando stated that a bigger concern is how to communicate to the public that they have to pay
           for it. Does this take a Proposition 218 vote and if so, what if it is voted down? He felt that an intensive
           public information campaign would be needed in order to get everyone involved.
           City Manager Lando expressed concern over the households that were included in the hot spot areas and
           that most of them do not believe that they have a problem. The major question was how would we help them
           pay for the hook up. There is a recognition that some will not be able to afford it. There would be some
           guarantee of payment with an assessment district. Another option could be a lien against the property.
           Councilmember Guzzetti expressed his oppositions to placing a lien against property.

       C. The proposed draft Regional Board/City/County agreement
          The City Manager advised that there is no draft agreement among the three agencies at this point. Staff
          would try to set up another meeting in mid-October to meet with the County on these issues.

5.     BUSINESS FROM THE FLOOR

       Melvin Smith addressed the Council with his concern that there really wasn’t a nitrate problem in the Chico area.
        He also stated that both the City and County were polluting the Sacramento River so why was it an issue for
       people to pollute the ground water.

4.     REGULAR AGENDA

4.1.   CONSIDERATION OF ART SELECTION PANEL RECOMMENDATION REGARDING THE ART PROPOSAL
       FOR THE PARK AVENUE GATEWAY ART PROJECT

       By memorandum dated 9/19/00, Art Projects Coordinator Gardner forwarded the recommendation of the Park
       Avenue Gateway Art Project Selection Panel regarding the artist and proposed art piece to be installed on Park
       Avenue in the median immediately north of the Meyers Street intersection. The Selection Panel reviewed 32
       applications and reduced the number to six finalists. The finalists were required to prepare scale models of their
       proposals and present them to the Panel. The models were then placed on display in the lobby of the Municipal
       Center building for two weeks, and public comment solicited. A summary of the public comments received was
       provided to the Selection Panel for consideration. At its meeting of 8/30/00, the Panel unanimously selected the
       proposal of artist John T. Young of Seattle for this project. At its meeting of 9/13/00, the Arts Commission
       reviewed the recommendation of the Panel.

       Artist John Young was present to present his proposal to the Council and to answer questions. A short slide
       presentation was included showing samples of the artist’s work and the textures used in his projects. The design
       created for Chico represents Chico’s history with farming and most of the materials to be used will be gathered
       locally. The Arts Commission recommended approval of the Selection Panel’s recommendation.

       Comments were received from Jeff Goolsby, Director of Mountain Valley Arts with regards to his reservations
       about this project. This project was a $150,000 commission and it was apparent that there needed to be some
       consensus on how public art would be executed in Chico. Local artists were interested in playing a role in the
       process but they felt excluded. He felt that smaller commissions would allow more projects, even a whole series
       of sculptures. Regional artists should be used since local RDA funds are being used to fund these projects.

       Dan Hays, a property owner north of the Myers Street questioned whether the project was on the agenda for
       approval. He also wanted to know if the businesses were notified. He couldn’t recall a notification. He had
       concern as to the type of sculpture as the planned location is the gateway into the Chico business area.

       Arts Project Coordinator Gardner informed Council that staff notified business owners about six months ago.


10/3/00                                                                                                 Page 2 of 11
      Mike Davis, a business owner in the Park Avenue area and Art Commissioner explained that the Arts Commission
      worked diligently on the selection of an art project and was looking forward to the sculpture being built. Richard
      Frey said he was on the selection panel and the project was well publicized, with 30 applicants responding. The
      selection was a difficult choice and represented a lot of work.

      Mayor Bertagna stated that it was difficult for him to make the connection between being a purchaser of art and
      how that promotes art. Councilmember Lange said she supported this project and wanted it known that the
      selection panel set aside their own feelings during the selection process. She reminded those in attendance that
      while this was a very unique project, it would not be the only one in this City.

      Councilmember Keene stated that the greatest success he had seen was the COBA project because that particular
      project was community initiated. The City should highlight local artists. While he didn’t originally support it,
      he would now. He felt that the current Park Avenue project doesn’t represent Chico and he would oppose the
      project based on that.

      Councilmember Kirk stated that she felt that with this project the City would participate in world class art and it
      would help to make Park Avenue attractive.

      Councilmember Herbert stated that while Park Avenue was under construction, comments he heard was that the
      Esplanade was so beautiful and couldn’t the Park Avenue project be treated with the same tree canopy. He felt
      that the COBA program was effective. He originally didn’t vote for it due to the funding mechanism. However,
      he watched, read the articles and in the future would support COBA programs.

      Councilmember Guzzetti stated that there was more interest and input now from the people regarding art in this
      community due to the City’s projects and that this was a learning process for local artists. In the future, there will
      be a variety of types of projects with a variety of artists participating.

      A motion was made by Councilmember Kirk and seconded by Councilmember Jarvis to approve the Selection
      Panel’s recommendation regarding the art proposal for the Park Avenue Gateway Art Project.

      The motion carried by the following vote:
      AYES:Guzzetti, Jarvis, Kirk, Lange
      NOES:Herbert, Keene, Bertagna
      ABSENT:        None

2.     CONSENT AGENDA Item 2.6 was removed from the Consent Agenda and heard under Item 4.1. A motion was
       made by Councilmember Keene and seconded by Councilmember Herbert to approve the following Consent
       Agenda items:

       At its meeting held 1/25/00, the City Council authorized the City Manager to negotiate the acquisition of a bicycle
       path easement along The Midway, east of Hegan Lane, for the construction of the bicycle path along The Midway
       between East Park Avenue and Hegan Lane. This minute order authorized the City Manager to enter into an
       agreement with North Valley Iron Works, Inc., to acquire approximately 2,686 square feet of bicycle path easement.
       Funds for the acquisition have been included in the 2000-01 annual Budget. The Assistant City Manager

       order authorizing the City Manager to enter into lease agreements to allow cattle grazing, consistent with the
       Preserve Management Plan, for the Foothill East Preserve, and recommended Council direct staff to pursue
       approval from the Fish and Wildlife Service to allow guided tours to observe spring wildflowers on the preserve.
       This minute order authorized the City Manager to enter into lease agreements to allow cattle grazing on the
       Foothill Preserve property consistent with the Preserve Management Plan. The Community Development Director
       recommended approval of the Minute Order.

       is conducted each year under the provisions of the California Government Code. Pursuant to those provisions,
       the City was required to hold a public meeting (10/3/00) and public hearing (10/17/00) before approving the
       placement of the assessments (the costs incurred by the City for performing the lot cleaning plus administrative
       costs) on the 2000-01 tax roll. Affected property owners were provided with written notice of the public meeting
       and public hearing, and a list of those property owners whose lot cleaning/weed abatement bills remain unpaid
       as of 9/18/00, was attached to the Project Manager’s memorandum. The Project Manager recommended approval
       of the assessments. The City Council approved the costs for various parcels as recommended in the staff
       memorandum



10/3/00                                                                                                  Page 4 of 11

       AYES:Guzzetti, Herbert, Jarvis, Keene, Kirk, Lange, Bertagna

       ABSTAIN:       None

3.     NOTICED PUBLIC HEARINGS

3.1.   HEARING ON PROPOSED WIRELESS TELECOMMUNICATIONS FACILITIES ORDINANCE - Mayor
       Bertagna announced that he was disqualified from participating in this matter and left the Chamber at 8:17 p.m.

       By memorandum dated 9/26/00, the Planning Director reported that, at its meeting of 9/21/00, the Planning
       Commission recommended adoption of a wireless telecommunications facilities ordinance modifying permitting
       procedures and development standards for wireless telecommunications facilities. The Planning Commission
       recommended that the Council adopt the proposed mitigated negative declaration and adopt the wireless
       telecommunications facilities ordinance with changes as indicated in the memorandum.

       Council discussed the possibility requiring all towers be setback 500 feet from residential zones. A setback was
       recommended by the Planning Director. Councilmember Keene stated that federal law would preempt what we
       do. Assistant City Attorney Barker stated that the ordinance doesn’t provide for annual monitoring for all
       permits, only those that would generate 80% or more of the permitted level of RF emissions. In the event that
       an applicant sought to locate a facility in a zone in which telecommunication facilities were not generally
       permitted, an outside consultant would be required to review the application and advise the city.

       Both the Planning Commission and Airport Commission approved the draft ordinance. The Park Commission also
       considered the ordinance and recommended that facilities not be permitted in OS1 and OS2 zones. ALUC found
       it in conflict with their plan, but Council had already voted on an override. ALUC did come up with some
       suggestions which the Planning Commission addressed.

       Vice Mayor Herbert opened the hearing to the public.

       Harold Carlson addressed the Council with his concerns that were presented to both the Airport and Planning
       Commission. All wireless structures should require a use permit and require a public hearing. These decisions
       should not be left up to the Planning Director. Extended notice requirements should be put into place. Notice
       within a 1000 feet is required in the county ordinance and a 100 feet or 300 feet is inadequate. He felt that there
       should be setback requirements from residential zones. The standard height should be 60 - 65 feet.
       Environmental review should also include aesthetic reviews. An environmental review should take place with
       each tower request. Permits for towers located in the City that do not meet City requirements should be given a
       year to relocate, as well as annexations where a tower is included. Towers must all have a phase out period so
       eventually there would be no towers. He was opposed to any provisions for grandfathering a current tower. The
       City should require annual testing and certification by a third party. Citizens should be able to appeal all portions
       of a use permit and an analysis of technical information as to location in each permit should be required. No
       wireless facilities should be allowed in areas where dish antennas are in use.

       Linnea Hanson wanted a condition in the permit so that the tower would be removed or phased out, especially
       in areas that are annexed from the County. There needs to be a scientific basis for why we need to place them
       where we place them. She urged the Council to go along with the Park Commission recommendation, not the one
       received from the Planning Commission. A consultant should be used and the 1,000 foot radius should be used.
        All people should be able to appeal the permit.

       Marsha Dean expressed her concern over the Mariposa tower happening again under this new ordinance. She
       didn’t feel that the draft ordinance addressed existing towers and the eventual phasing out of misplaced towers.
       She would like to see a provision added for phasing out of towers and wanted to confirm that the reason for this
       ordinance was to keep towers out of residential areas.



10/3/00                                                                                                    Page 5 of 11
      Richard Harriman felt that there was a problem with the CEQA review and felt there was a need to redo the initial
      study. He also stated that staff needed to define, on page 5, “functionally required,” along with “geographical
      area”, “stealting requirements” and “technically required.” He also recommended the inclusion of a provision for
      a currently sited tower to move without a permit fee.

      Maggie Vandame felt that there were good things in the ordinance, although disjointed in some places. She
      questioned where schools fall in the zoning of these towers. She thought that there shouldn’t be any towers on
      school grounds.

      Ron Mauck, a contract planner for Pacific Bell, asked for clarification on location preference sites.

      Arlan Nickle, AT&T, indicated that they support the ordinance and the committee process. Many other cities
      encourage it in open space and in park areas due to the revenue stream created by the location of facilities in park
      areas. He didn’t know if it would work in Chico, but thought they would raise the issue. He did mention that an
      automatic term limit of ten years is difficult. Carriers would have a problem relocating the towers and this may
      result in an interruption in service.

      Chris Perske felt that the setbacks should be six times the height of the tower. The ordinance does not go far
      enough to protect the community. The higher the tower the further away it should be. Visual impacts are not
      defined as to what is considered significant. The right to appeal is limited. It should be made easier.

      Doug Perske wanted to see something in the ordinance to address Mariposa. Something needs to be included
      that addresses relocation of existing towers. The setback from residential zones should be a minimum 1000 feet.
      One hundred feet in a neighborhood is not enough of a set back. He was told by Pac Bell and Kim Seidler that
      the tower on Mariposa was being worked on and he would like to know the status of it. The ordinance is not
      totally adequate until a public workshop is held to address the issues brought up tonight.

      Janet Leslie agreed with the concerns that were raised, but was appreciative of all the work that staff and the
      Council put into the ordinance. Inclusion of the 1,000 ft setback, definition of “visual impact” and the comments
      made about the schools would help strengthen the ordinance.

      Councilmember Jarvis asked staff how the grandfathering in of towers would be handled. Assistant City
      Attorney Barker indicated that there could be incentives to move the tower. However, amortization was not
      included in the ordinance and noted it could be difficult to draft amortization provisions. Councilmember Jarvis
      also questioned staff on the life of use permits. Staff informed Council that some use permits have a time frame
      for review. However, a use permit can be limited in duration.

      A motion was made by Councilmember Guzzetti to approve the introduction of the ordinance with the inclusion
      of the following changes: no facilities permitted on school grounds, no towers permitted in OS1 or OS2 zones, a
      1,000 feet notice requirement for all permits, a 500 feet setback from residential property for all new towers, no co-
      location on the Mariposa tower, 10-year limit on permits, and incentives for moving a tower

      The motion was seconded by Councilmember Jarvis. with a friendly amendment to make it a 500 feet setback
      requirement from schools as well as residential zones. The amendment was accepted.

      detailed map could be created for Council.

       DETERMINATIONS IN CONNECTION WITH IVY STREET BUSINESS PARK AND FLORAL GARDEN
       SUBDIVISION:
       By memorandum dated 9/20/00, the Director of Public Works provided the background on his recommendation
       to not hear the appeal requested by Dan Hays. Specifically:
       A. Ivy Street Business Park. Dan Hays appealed the required depth of the street cross section, which is
          calculated based upon use of an engineering traffic index. The Director of Public Works indicates that the
          Ivy Street business Park was designed using a traffic index of 7.5. Using the Institute of Traffic Engineers
          traffic generation manual for commercial property, a traffic index of 7.5 is calculated for the commercial
          property adjacent to his extension; therefore, no oversizing of the Ivy Street extension has occurred.
       B. Floral Garden Subdivision. Dan Hays appealed the requirement that the developer pay for the relocation of
          utilities. As a condition of completing public improvements on Floral Avenue to accommodate ultimate four-
          lane facilities, he was required to widen Floral Avenue which was impacted by utility poles and a PG&E gas
          line. The City does, as a function of development, pay for the additional roadway width through street
          development impact fees (CMC 3.85) if the street is a part of the project list included in the Nexus Study.
          However, the formula by which the development impact fee is calculated does not include costs for the
          relocation of utilities due to construction.
           Copies of the Director of Public Works’ letter dated 8/17/00, upon which the appeal is based, and the appeal
           from Mr. Hays were attached to the memorandum. The Director of Public Works recommended that his
           determinations be upheld and the appeal not be scheduled for hearing.

       The Council referred these appeals to the Finance Committee for review and recommendation.

4.3.   CONSIDERATION OF REQUEST FROM CHICO COMMUNITY SHELTER PARTNERSHIP FOR
       ALLOCATION OF FUNDS THAT HAVE BEEN SET ASIDE FOR ACQUIRING A HOMELESS SHELTER OR
       A SITE FOR A HOMELESS SHELTER
       This matter was scheduled for consideration at the request of Councilmember Jarvis. By letter dated 9/22/00, the
       Chico Community Shelter Partnership (CCSP) requested that the Council allocate to CCSP the Community
       Development Block Grant (CDBG) Funds that have been set aside for the purpose of acquiring a homeless shelter
       or a site for a homeless shelter. Provided in the letter was information regarding the CCSP site selection process,
       potential sites for CCSP or the City to acquire, and projected financing for site acquisition and shelter
       construction. Pursuant to Council protocol, staff had not prepared a detailed report for this matter; however, by
       memorandum dated 9/20/00, the Housing Officer provided background on the Finance Committee
       recommendations and previous Council actions regarding allocation of the CDBG funds for a homeless services
       facility.




10/3/00                                                                                                  Page 7 of 11
      Councilmember Jarvis stated that this item is on the agenda for the funding of a shelter, not a specific site. The
      selection process is still not even completed.

      Housing Officer Dennis McLaughlin provided an overview on the original funding process and indicated that
      $145,000 is now available.

      Mary Flynn urged the Council to release the funds that had been set aside and that the money be committed to
      CCSP. She had spent time visiting other programs across the nation, looking for a community answer to a
      community issue. Greg Burton explained the process used for the selection of potential sites.

      Andy Holcombe, President of the CCSP, was there not asking to purchase a specific site but to have the funds
      committed to the project. They want the public involved in the actual location. It is their long-term goal for a year
      round facility. Any offer they would make would be based on obtaining approval of a use permit. He thought
      that RDA funds could be used, if additional funds were needed for the acquisition. Building costs would be
      covered through local fund-raising and grant funds as available.
      Councilmember Herbert stated that Council had originally discussed only a winter shelter program but now the
      request or desire was to go year round. He has a problem with the project, once it becomes year-round because
      it represents different elements of need. His concern was that with a year-round facility the motivation might be
      to stay homeless and at the shelter instead of perhaps going back to their families where there is a support
      mechanism.

      Councilmember Lange stated that she served on the Finance Committee which approved the set aside of those
      funds as “winter shelter”. She asked Andy Holcombe if they would be willing to begin with a winter facility, and
      as they gain the funds, expand as needed.

      ------------------------------------------------------
      Council concurred to continue the meeting to 11:30 p.m.
      ------------------------------------------------------

      Councilmember Guzzetti indicated he was more concerned about channeling the homeless instead of being
      concerned about them being on the streets.

      Ted Sandberg wanted to remind the Council that the temporary winter shelters at the churches were done on a
      temporary basis while a permanent solution was being sought.

      Tod Kimmelshue agreed that there was a need in the community for such a facility.

      Linda Huffman from Butte County Behavioral Health indicated they were working on a grant that could help
      provide services to those with mental health problems with a 24-hour crisis response.

      David Ferrier supported the release of funds as it was time to finally do something.

      A motion was made by Councilmember Jarvis to allocate up to $175,000 in the current funds with a requirement
      to secure Council approval of the site after obtaining a use permit. CCSP has returned money in the past when
      they didn’t expend it all. They are not asking for operating funds. The motion was seconded by Councilmember
      Kirk.

      Councilmember Keene stated that we have never let our homeless people sleep on the street. We can do another
      year maybe with vouchers. His approach would be to go slow. The Council has set aside money for it. He was
      very concerned about the mentally ill.

      Councilmember Guzzetti believed that the Council had proceeded slowly. The CDBG funds are federal dollars.
      It is less than half of one percent of what we have spent the last two years of approximately $50M.

      Councilmember Jarvis requested a report on the HELP program from the Chief of Police in the next few weeks.

      Mayor Bertagna had concerns about a year-round facility. There has been a good faith effort by the shelter
      people. He would support the motion, however, not the year round shelter. The funds can be used for a winter


10/3/00                                                                                                   Page 8 of 11
       facility. The Mayor requested a friendly amendment to exclude Morrow Lane which is in a neighborhood and
       he had received comments from concerned citizens.

       Councilmember Jarvis did not accept the friendly amendment as every site will have people opposing it.

       The motion carried by the following vote:
       AYES:          Guzzetti, Jarvis, Kirk, Lange, Bertagna
       NOES:          Herbert and Keene
       ABSENT:        None

          Permit Fees, Transportation Facility Fees, Sewer Fees, Public Works Fees, Vacation and/or Abandonment
          Fees, Public Right of Way Cafe License Fee, and Airport Fees). The Committee recommended (3-0) that staff
          be directed to revise the proposed annual fee schedule adjustments to eliminate any fee increases that were
          based on employee salary increases, including those discussed by the Committee today; and that the annual

       The City Manager shall have the discretion to reduce interest on delinquent assessments up to the City’s rate
       of return plus 2% (the rate of return is to be based on the annualized rate on the City’s investment pool for the
       period of the delinquencies), subject to the condition that the property owner can provide evidence that he/she
       had no knowledge of the delinquent assessments, no control over the payment of the delinquent assessments,
       or could not pay because the County would not accept partial payment.

       A motion was made by Councilmember Herbert and seconded by Councilmember Kirk to accept the Finance
       Committee recommendation of the policy authorizing staff to reduce interest on delinquent assessments.

       The motion carried by the following vote:

3.     NOTICED PUBLIC HEARINGS

3.1.   HEARING ON IMPLEMENTATION OF SEWER LIFT STATION CAPACITY FEES - LASSEN AVENUE SEWER
       LIFT STATION

       By memorandum dated 9/22/00 the Director of Public Works recommended approval of the below resolution which
       will designate the area to be served by the Lassen Avenue Sewer Lift Station and establish the lift station capacity
       fees to be assessed upon connection to the City sewer system by properties within the designated areas served
       by the Lassen Avenue Sewer Lift Station. Section 66016 of the California Government Code requires that a public
       hearing on establishment of a Development Impact Fee be held and that a public notice be mailed to anyone who
       has requested such notice. In addition, such requests must be renewed annually on April 1. The required notice
       was mailed to those parties who have filed such a request. The Director of Public Works recommended approval
       of this resolution designating the area to be served by this lift station and establishing a connection fee for
       properties connecting thereto. The Mayor opened the hearing to the public. No one spoke.

       A motion was made by Councilmember Herbert and seconded by Councilmember Kirk to adopt:

       RESOLUTION NO. 46 00-01 - A RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CHICO AMENDING
       THE CITY’S FEE SCHEDULE (AMENDMENT NO. 251 - SEWER LIFT STATION CAPACITY FEES)

       NOES:          None
       ABSENT:        None
       ABSTAIN:       None

3.2.   HEARING ON GENERAL PLAN AMENDMENT (GPA 00-7) AND PREZONE (PZ 00-3)

       By memorandum dated 10/17/00, Assistant Planner Hanson reported that at the Planning Commission meeting
       of 9/7/00, the Commission voted unanimously (7-0) to recommend approval of an amendment to the General Plan
       Diagram from Low Density Residential to Community Commercial (Patterson) and a consistent prezone from R1
       Low Density Residential to PD/CC Planned Development/Community Commercial for property located at 259
       Panama Avenue. State law limits the number of times a general plan may be amended annually; therefore, several
       amendments will be brought forward for City Council consideration as one action and resolution this year.
       Planning staff recommended that the Council hold a public hearing on this General Plan amendment and rezone
       and adopt the resolution of intent to approve the amendment to the City of Chico General Plan. Final reading and
       adoption of the rezone ordinance will be brought forward with the General Plan amendment on a future consent
       agenda for City Council adoption. The Planning Commission and Planning Director recommended adoption of

       By memorandum dated 10/4/00, Project Manager Wood reported that the lot cleaning/weed abatement program
       is conducted each year under the provisions of the California Government Code. Pursuant to those provisions,
       the City was required to hold a public hearing (10/17/00) before approving the placement of the assessments (the
       costs incurred by the City for performing the lot cleaning plus administrative costs) on the 2000-01 tax roll.
       Affected property owners were provided with written notice of the public hearing, and a list of those property
       owners whose lot cleaning/weed abatement bills remain unpaid as of 10/4/00, is attached to the memorandum.
       The Project Manager recommended that the City Council (1) Hear any public protests or comments; (2) Approve
       the costs for various parcels as recommended in his memorandum; (3) Make any changes or corrections it deems
       appropriate in the assessments based on any protests or comments it hears at the public hearing on 10/17/00, and
       (4) Approve the placement of the assessments on the 2000-01 tax roll. The Mayor opened the hearing to the
       public. No one spoke.

       A motion was made by Councilmember Kirk, seconded by Councilmember Herbert to approve the costs as
       recommended, approve the placement of the assessments on the 2000-01 tax roll and waive the $80.00 filing fee
       for those properties recommended in the memorandum.

       The motion carried by the following vote:
       AYES:          Guzzetti, Herbert, Jarvis, Keene, Kirk, Lange, Bertagna
       NOES:          None
       ABSENT:        None

3.4.   HEARINGONFORMATION OF MAINTENANCE DISTRICT NO. 505, WHITEHALL PARK SUBDIVISION
       By memorandum dated 9/22/00, the Community Development Director reported that this resolution would order
       the formation of Chico Maintenance Assessment District No. 505. As a condition of approval of a subdivision
       map for this subdivision, generally located north of the intersection of Centennial Avenue and East 8th Street, the
       developer, Paul Leete, has consented to the formation of this district for the operation, maintenance, and future
       replacement of the storm drainage facilities within the subdivision. This maintenance assessment district would
       provide that the City perform (or contract for) the operation and maintenance services which would be paid for
       by property owners within this district. Future annual assessments will be paid at the time other property taxes
       are collected. The Community Development Director recommended adoption of the Resolution. The Mayor
       opened the hearing to the public. No one spoke.

       A motion was made by Councilmember Kirk and seconded by Councilmember Jarvis to adopt the following:

       RESOLUTION NO. 48 00-01 - A RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CHICO ORDERING

3.5.   HEARING ON FORMATION OF MAINTENANCE DISTRICT NO. 504, SCOUT COURT

       By memorandum dated 9/26/00, the Community Development Director reported that this resolution would order
       the formation of Chico Maintenance Assessment District No. 504. As a condition of approval of a subdivision
       map for this subdivision, generally located on the west side of Marigold Avenue, 330 feet north of East Avenue,
       the developers, Lowell and Debbie Pierce and Kevin Pierce, have consented to the formation of this district for
       the operation, maintenance, and future replacement of the landscaping and irrigation within the future median on
       Marigold Avenue and the storm drainage leach trench interior to the subdivision. This maintenance assessment
       district would provide that the City perform (or contract for) the operation and maintenance services which would
       be paid for by property owners within this district. Future annual assessments would be paid at the time other
       property taxes are collected. The Community Development Director recommended adoption of the Resolution.
       The Mayor opened the hearing to the public. No one spoke.

REGULAR AGENDA
4.1.   ITEMS REMOVED FROM THE CONSENT AGENDA - none

4.2.   CONSIDERATION OF BANK EROSION STUDY - LINDO CHANNEL, MANZANITA TO MADRONE
       AVENUES
       By memorandum dated 9/28/00 the Park Director transmitted a study which examined the bank conditions along
       Lindo Channel from Manzanita to Madrone Avenues. The report confirmed that there were two sites in need of
       stabilization and presented preliminary recommendations that addressed those sites. The City Council requested
       this information prior to discussing what, if any, role the City would have addressing the erosion issues which
       are on private property.

       Roger Cole presented an overview of his recommendations contained in the Bank Erosion Study Final Report
       prepared for the City by Interactive Design.

       City Manager Lando stated that his residence was downstream from the area that Council was asking questions
       about and therefore did not feel comfortable in participating in the conversation. He left the Chamber at 7:45 p.m.

       Comments were received from the public. Valarie Converse urged the Council to complete the repairs in this area.
       Her property is adjacent to one of the sites. John Merz felt that a comprehensive plan was needed to address
       these issues. Whatever repairs were done in one area would impact another. Lindo Channel, when it is flowing,
       is flowing on private property. The City needs a comprehensive plan that deals with everything including actual
       costs. He also felt that staff should first look at what the City’s responsibility is and then the property owners.

       Councilmember Jarvis recommended that Council continue this item to the 11/21/00 meeting which would allow
       staff additional time to present additional information on the repair costs and a master management plan for the
       Channel. Councilmember Kirk questioned whether we would be doing a disservice addressing individual
       problems areas without an overall plan.

       Councilmember Keene stated that one of the properties had already lost half of its backyard area. He didn’t think
       that the City should wait until more of the land was lost and then have to handle it under an emergency approach.
       He felt that the City should proceed with the repair. He did agree that the City needed to look at the shared
       responsibility for the costs of repairs.

       Councilmember Jarvis said that she wanted consideration to proceed quickly. Her motion was to accept the
       report, send it to the 11/21/00 budget meeting at which time the matter could be agendized for both funding of the
       repairs and consideration of an overall Lindo Channel Management Plan. Councilmember Kirk seconded it.



       The motion carried by the following vote:
       AYES:          Guzzetti, Herbert, Jarvis, Keene, Kirk, Lange, Bertagna
       NOES:          None
       ABSENT:        None
       ABSTAIN:       None

4.3.   CONSIDERATION OF REPORT AND RECOMMENDATIONS FROM THE FINANCE COMMITTEE ON ITS


10/17/00                                                                                                   Page 5 of 9
       MEETING HELD ON 10/2/00
       By memorandum dated 10/5/00, the Finance Committee provided a report on its meeting held on 10/2/00, at which
       time the matters listed below were considered. Committee members present were Councilmembers Herbert, Lange,
       and Keene, Chair.
       A. (No Council action required--this recommendation was approved by Council on 10/3/00)
          Consideration of Policy Allowing City Manager to Negotiate and Reduce Interest and Penalties on
          Delinquent Assessments. The Committee recommended (3-0) adoption of the following policy authorizing
          staff to reduce interest on delinquent assessments: The City Manager shall have the discretion to reduce
          interest on delinquent assessments up to the City’s rate of return plus 2% (the rate of return is to be based
          on the annualized rate on the City’s investment pool for the period of the delinquencies), subject to the
          condition that the property owner can provide evidence that he/she had no knowledge of the delinquent
          assessments, no control over the payment of the delinquent assessments, or could not pay because the
          County would not accept partial payment.
       B. (No Council action required)
          Approval of Loan Agreement Provisions for Loan to CSU, Chico Research Foundation for Property
          Acquisition in the College Park Area. The Committee approved (3-0) the provisions to be included in the loan
          agreements between the City and the CSU, Chico Research Foundation for the purchase of property in the
          College Park area as set forth in the memorandum dated 9/25/00 from Assistant City Attorney Barker, and that
          Item #1 in the Explanation attached to Minute Order No. 29-99 be corrected to delete the words, “...for a multi-
          purpose recreational facility in the area.” (NOTE: After the meeting staff determined that this language was
          part of the explanation attached to the Minute Order which referred to a letter from CSUC, and, therefore, did
          not affect the action taken by the City Council in the Minute Order.)
       C. (Council action required)
          Consideration of Proposed Changes to the City’s Purchasing Rules. The Committee (3-0) recommended that
          staff be directed to expand the proposed revisions to the City’s purchasing policies to include purchase of
          major, specialized equipment, rather than being limited to public safety vehicles and equipment; to provide
          information on how the cost savings for such purchases could be evaluated and documented; and to develop
          draft Code amendments implementing the proposed policies for further Committee review and
          recommendation.

                A motion was made by Councilmember Kirk and seconded by Councilmember Guzzetti to adopt the proposed
                changes to the City’s purchasing rules.

                The motion carried by the following vote:
                AYES:          Guzzetti, Herbert, Jarvis, Keene, Kirk, Lange, Bertagna
                NOES:          None
                ABSENT:        None
                ABSTAIN:       None

4.4.   ITEMS ADDED AFTER PREPARATION OF THE AGENDA

4.4.   CONSIDERATION OF REQUEST FROM COUNCILMEMBER LANGE
           By memorandum dated 10/11/00, Councilmember Lange requested postponement of the below discussion (item
           4.5) requested by Councilmember Guzzetti for the following reasons:

           A.     The Council should not discuss any Fair Political Practices Commission (FPPC) investigations before they
                  are completed and the Commission has finalized its examination of circumstances; however, if Council
                  chooses to discuss the investigation of Planning Commissioner Wahl’s activities; then all current
                  investigations should be discussed, including the FPPC investigation of Councilmember Jarvis’ activities.
           B.     The issue of Planning Commissioner Bradford’s residency has already been reviewed by the City Attorney
                  and found to be acceptable.
           C.     Discussion of campaign finance reform within two weeks of an election should be postponed until after
                  the election, since the current candidates have all been conducting their campaigns under the same,
                  existing rules and regulations for this year.
           D.     Discussion of the above issues at a City Council meeting during the heat of the political campaign would
                  detract from accomplishing the City’s business.

10/17/00                                                                                                     Page 6 of 9
           Councilmember Lange stated that while this issue needed to be addressed, it shouldn’t take place in the middle
           of an election which was why she made the request to postpone discussion. Councilmember Guzzetti read his
           memo to the Council. He stated that he wished Councilmember Lange had read his memo before placing her item
           on the agenda instead of reacting to an article in the paper. He felt that he needed to respond to the numerous
           inquiries regarding conflicts of interest.

           Councilmember Kirk felt that the memo from the Assistant City Attorney was confusing. She would like to
           make it specific that you have to live continuously within the city when on a commission. Councilmember
           Jarvis suggested that the issue should go to the Internal Affairs Committee along with additional issues such
           as absences on the various Commissions and Committees.

           The Mayor opened up the discussion to the public. John Gillander didn’t feel that Council should only address
           one of the several individuals with potential problems with the FPPC. The only confirmation that he had
           received from FPPC on who was being investigated was Councilmember Jarvis.

           Caryn Jones stated that Larry Wahl was the Chairman of the Planning Commission and appointed by the
           Council, not elected. She felt that Larry Wahl should be suspended until FPPC issues its ruling. Dan Drake
           has contributed $25,000 to help elect his candidates to the Council.

           Mike Smith encouraged the Council to consider the letter from Councilmember Guzzetti.

           Tim Bousquet felt there was a problem with Councilmember Lange’s request due to the fact that she had never
           been elected. The Council is a political body and should hear these type of issues. Councilmember Keene had
           a problem with Planning Commissioner Barry Belmonte several years ago. If there is a problem with
           Councilmember Jarvis, then yes, that should be looked at also. Larry Wahl said at a recent candidate’s forum
           that the city should grow to the east. Drake owns the property to the east. In addition, Tim felt there was a
           residency issue with Bradford. No matter what address that you look at in the directory, he didn’t believe that
           Bradford was living in the City.

---------------------------------------------------
Council took a ten minute break at 9:00 p.m.
---------------------------------------------------

           The Mayor spoke and stated that since the Council was already hearing comments on 4.5., Council should
           consider discussing Councilmember Guzzetti’s memo. The Mayor also stated that as far as campaign reform
           goes, it should be looked at after the election. There are rules that are already in place that everyone has been
           following. If there were to be changes, they should occur after the election.

           A motion was made by Mayor Bertagna and seconded by Councilmember Keene to discuss Councilmember
           Guzzetti’s memo. Council concurred.

4.5.       DISCUSSION OF ISSUES RAISED BY COUNCILMEMBER GUZZETTI
           By memorandum dated 10/8/00, Councilmember Guzzetti requests the Council to discuss the following:
           A. Concern that Planning Commissioner Larry Wahl has received campaign funds from citizens that have
               business before the Commission. Pursuant to Councilmember Guzzetti’s request, the Council is being
               provided with copies of materials previously prepared by Assistant City Attorney Barker: (1) a
               memorandum dated 6/28/00 regarding potential conflicts based on campaign contributions, and (2) an
               outline entitled, “The Rules,” and copies of Government Code Sections 84306 through 85102, which were
               distributed to the Planning Commission for its meeting of 7/20/00.

           B.   Concern with whether Planning Commissioner Ross Bradford meets the residency requirement (registered
                to vote within the City of Chico) for Board and Commission members, and also whether he has any conflict
                of interest issues.
           C.   Additional campaign financing reform for both individuals and general purpose committees.

           Councilmember Guzzetti stated that Dan Drake had contributed to four of the seven Planning Commission
           members and there was no longer a quorum on the Planning Commission that could hear his items.

10/17/00                                                                                                     Page 7 of 9
           Councilmember Keene expressed his concern over accusations so close to the election. He felt that it should
           be discussed after the election is over.

           Councilmember Jarvis made a motion to send this item to the Internal Affairs Committee for clarification of
           absences, campaign reform, and residency requirements. The motion was seconded.

           The Mayor asked for audience comments. John Gillander informed the Council that a bill had passed and was
           signed by the Governor regarding conflict of interest reform. This new bill would address this issue.

           Caryn Jones disagreed with waiting until after the election to address these issues. She felt that the Municipal
           Code already limited contributions.

           Councilmember Jarvis questioned staff on what would happen if someone violated the municipal code. City
           Attorney Frank informed the Council that the determination of a violation would be based on the “intent.” If
           anyone had a compliant it would need to be filed with the City Attorney’s office, in which case, if a violation
           had occurred, it would be a misdemeanor. He cautioned that the limit applied to 18 months before the election.

           Larry Wahl addressed the Council to let them know that he was working with the FPPC to comply with all
           requirements. Ross Bradford also informed the Council that he was there to answer any questions.

           Dan Nguyen-Tan felt that the Council should wait for any FPPC rulings before addressing these issues. He
           supported campaign finance reform and felt that it should be addressed.

           Council concurred to send these issues to Internal Affairs Committee for clarification of absences, campaign
           reform, and residency requirements.

6.1.       Letter dated 9/22/00 from Dolly Brown requesting to make a presentation to the City Council in November
           regarding a proposal for a “Youth Auxiliary City Council.” Council concurred to allow a presentation to be

6.2.       Letter dated 9/29/00 from Director Patrick Kopp and Associate Director Dan DeWayne, University Public

       DIRECTOR TO ENTER INTO AN AGREEMENT FOR AGENCY ASSISTANCE WITH PUBLIC

       BUSINESS TECHNOLOGY INCUBATOR AT THE CHICO MUNICIPAL AIRPORT
       The CSU, Chico College of Engineering, Computer Science and Technology (ECT) was interested in establishing
       a Business Technology/Incubator Center on the approximate 3.76 acre parcel on the corner of Airpark Blvd. and
       Fortress St. at the Chico Municipal Airport that was sold to Slater Land Inc. The proposed Technology
       Center/Incubator would provide services and facilities necessary to foster the growth of computer based high
       technology businesses by subleasing space to new and expanding businesses. ECT requested assistance from
       the Redevelopment Agency for the public improvement costs and the associated building permit and other
       development impact fees. The Economic Development Committee reviewed this request for assistance and
       recommended that the Redevelopment Agency provide a 5-year loan at 0% interest for up to $150,000 in
       assistance for the off-site improvement costs, and the associated development impact and permit fees for the
       proposed incubator project. The loan repayment agreement would allow for a $5,000 credit for each $30,000/year
       or more salaried job created through the incubator. This recommendation was consistent with previous
       agreements the Agency had entered with other noncommercial businesses. This Minute Order would authorize
       the Executive Director to enter into an agreement for a 5-year loan of up to $150,000 for the cost of public
       improvements, and the building permit and development impact fees associated with the project subject to the
       terms and conditions set forth in the Minute Order. In addition to the Minute Order, the Council was provided
       with copies of the Economic Development Committee minutes and background information the Committee
       received relating to this project. The Economic Development Committee recommended approval of the Minute
       Order.

       Barbara and Earl Dunn, property owners in the site characterization testing area near Bruce and Humboldt Roads,
       have refused to execute an agreement on right of entry to allow testing and sampling required to complete the
       Final Work Plan for Additional Site Characterization . The Dunns proposed that the City or Agency acquire the
       property. Because of substantial delays which could result if testing does not proceed in a timely fashion, the
       Executive Director of the Agency recommended that the Agency acquire the property subject to the terms and
       conditions set forth in the minute order, and arrange for conveyance of title to the City of Chico, contingent on

       prepare scale models of their proposals and present them to the Panel. The models were then placed on display
       in the lobby of the Municipal Center building for two weeks, and public comment solicited. A summary of the
       public comments received was provided to the Selection Panel for consideration. At its meeting of 9/18/00, the
       Panel selected the proposal of artist James T. Russell of Lomita, California for this project. At their joint meeting
       of 9/26/00, the Airport Commission and the Arts Commission reviewed the recommendation of the Panel and each

3.     NOTICED PUBLIC HEARINGS

3.1.   HEARING ON APPEAL BY CITY MANAGER OF MODIFICATION OF USE PERMIT CONDITIONS (AT&T
       WIRELESS SERVICE) — The Mayor disqualified himself from the discussion on this item and left the Chamber

       By memorandum dated 10/16/00, Senior Planner Palmeri reported that at its meeting of 7/25/00 the City Council
       set for hearing on 11/7/00, an appeal by the City Manager of the 7/6/00 Planning Commission action modifying
       Use Permit 99-28 (AT&T Wireless Services) by deleting Conditions 5 and 6 relating to power levels and annual
       monitoring of a telecommunications facility. The decision was appealed by the City Manager on the basis that
       the modification was inconsistent with Council direction of 2/1/00. The site was located at 215 Orange Street, and
       was      identified as Assessor’s Parcel Number 004-038-003.               The property is zoned ML Light
       Manufacturing/Industrial and was designated Manufacturing and Warehousing on the General Plan Diagram.

       The Council was also provided with copies of a letter with exhibits dated 10/27/00 from Kevin R. Iams,
       representing AT&T Wireless Service, opposing the appeal.

       The Planning Director recommended that the City Council deny the appeal and adopt the below resolution
       approving a modification of the use permit conditions consistent with the wireless telecommunications facilities
       ordinance. Vice Mayor Herbert opened the hearing to the public.

       Kevin Iams from AT&T stated that any type of monitoring is prohibited by the Federal Communication Act and
       only the FCC has the authority to determine this requirement. Secondly, the conditions originally imposed were
       discriminatory as no other carrier had been required to limit power densities. In regards to the health and safety
       issues, he felt that this facility, at its greatest possible output was only 1% of what is legally permitted. There
       would be no risk to the neighbors or community.

       Richard Harriman wanted to clarify that the Council (if action was taken) was modifying the conditions of a use
       permit which would require another environmental review. Doreen Kelley, representing Butte County Red Cross,
       stated that she felt stronger power signals were needed, especially in times of emergency. Her concern was the
       impact for notifying emergency personnel in a time of crisis and if the signals were too weak which could cause
       a delay in obtaining help. City Manager Lando clarified that the power level that had been granted was the level
       requested by the carrier, not determined by City requirements.

       The Vice Mayor closed the Public Hearing. A motion was made by Councilmember Keene and seconded by
       Councilmember Kirk to adopt:

       RESOLUTION NO. 52 00-01 -- A RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CHICO APPROVING
       A MODIFICATION OF THE CONDITIONS OF APPROVAL FOR USE PERMIT 99-28 (AT&T WIRELESS
       SERVICES) TO ALLOW A TELECOMMUNICATIONS FACILITY AT 215 ORANGE STREET, ASSESSOR’S
       PARCEL NUMBER 004-038-003 - PUBLIC HEARING

3.2.   HEARING ON GENERAL PLAN AMENDMENT (GPA 00-8)

       By memorandum dated 10/18/00, Senior Planner Tom Hayes reported that at the Planning Commission meeting
       of 10/05/00, the Commission voted unanimously (6-0) to recommend approval of text amendments to the Noise
       Element of the General Plan. The proposed amendments incorporated changes recommended by the Arterial
       Noise Study. The amendments combined with the Acoustical Design Manual establish noise standards for
       transportation and non-transportation noise sources and provided a variety of measures that will be used to
       mitigate noise impacts on noise sensitive land uses, such as housing, and in many instances, avoid the use of
       “sound-walls.” The Planning Commission and Planning Director recommended adoption of the resolution. The
       Mayor opened the hearing to the public. No one spoke on this issue. Councilmember Keene stated that he wasn't
       sure that the 10-feet requirement was adequate and would like to have Internal Affairs look at those requirements.

       A motion was made by Councilmember Jarvis and seconded by Councilmember Kirk to adopt:

       RESOLUTION NO. 53 00-01 -- A RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CHICO AMENDING

       00-8)

4.2    CITY BUDGET REVIEW

       A. General Budget Review -- The City Manager provided Council with an overview of the financial position of
          the City of Chico. Revenues are up, with sales tax playing a significant role in that increase. Trends indicate
          that sales tax will be increasing more this year. The City Manager informed Council that the proposed sales
          tax reapportionment could pose a problem for Chico. In addition, the increasing role of Internet sales should
          also be a caution for the city.

           The City Manager noted that in the Budget, property taxes for 99/00 - 00/01 have dropped which was due
           largely to the receipt of several one time payments of taxes paid in arrears the prior fiscal year. The numbers
           currently projected are conservative but are still a little below last year’s estimates.

           City staff provided an overview of the 2000-01 annual budget, including revised projected General and Park
           Funds fund balances following the close of the 1999-00 books. The City Council was provided with the
           following budget documents:

           1.    General and Park Funds Projected Trends.

           2.    Summary of Estimated Fund Balances.

           3.    Capital Project Status Report.


       B. Consideration of Proposed Budget Adjustments

           By memorandum dated 11/13/00, the City Manager outlined his recommendations for additional City
           personnel and related equipment in the total amount of $546,425. The personnel recommendations included
           those postponed by the City Council at the 06/06/00 budget review meeting and several new positions to
           enable the City to keep up with community growth. In addition, the memorandum sets forth his
           recommendations for non-personnel budget adjustments in the total amount of $1,975,819. The General/Park
           Funds impact for the recommendations for the second half of the 2000-01 fiscal year total $507,342, of which

                     THE CITY COUNCIL CONVENED THE REDEVELOPMENT AGENCY
           FOR THE PURPOSE OF CONSIDERING REDEVELOPMENT AGENCY BUDGET ITEMS

4.3.   CHICO REDEVELOPMENT AGENCY BUDGET REVIEW

       Agency staff reviewed the financial status of the Chico Merged and Greater Chico Urban Area Redevelopment
       Project Areas and related funds. The City Manager provided the Council with an overview of:

       A. Chico Merged Redevelopment Project Area Fund Five Year Trends.

       B. Greater Chico Urban Area Redevelopment Project Area Fund Five Year Trends.

       C. Low and Moderate Income Housing Fund Summary. Assistant City Manager Dunlap provided the Council
          with an overview of the Housing program. Over the last year the City has seen a lot more repayments for
          mortgage subsidy loans because of the improved housing market. The Low and Moderate Income Housing
          Fund ending balance, if all projects go through, will be $828,680.

       --------------------------------------------
       Council took a ten minute break at 11:20 a.m.
       --------------------------------------------

       The Council meeting was reconvened at 11:30 a.m. and Item 4.5. regarding the Lindo Channel Master Management
       Plan was heard at this time.

4.5.   CONSIDERATION OF A MASTER MANAGEMENT PLAN FOR LINDO CHANNEL, OTHER ISSUES
       RELATED TO STREAM BANK EROSION ALONG LINDO CHANNEL, AND ALLOCATION OF FUNDING
       IF APPROPRIATE TO IMPLEMENT COUNCIL ACTION

       A. By memorandum dated 11/01/00 the Park Director provided a status report on Lindo Channel Greenway
          Existing Conditions Study (11027). The City Council also requested information regarding preparation of a
          master management plan for the greenway. The estimated cost was $25,000 and the project could be initiated
          by April or May 2001. The Park Director recommended approval of a supplemental appropriation in the
          amount of $25,000 from the Park Fund (002) to fund preparation of the master management plan.



           Park Director Beardsley provided the Council with an overview of the Lindo Channel erosion issues and the
           need for the development of a master management plan. Staff felt that the allocation of the $25,000 would
           enable them to proceed immediately with the work once the Department of Water Resources (DWR) report
           on channel capacity was received. If the plan didn’t come in then the money would not be expended.


11/21/00                                                                                               Page 8 of 13
           Councilmember Keene stated that Council should wait to allocate the money until the DWR plan was
           available.

           Councilmember Jarvis made a motion to approve the allocation of the $25,000, from the Park Fund, so when
           the DWR study came in the Park Department could start the work. Councilmember Keene felt that the Council
           should be involved in the overall development of what is studied. Councilmember Keene asked for a friendly
           amendment to have the DWR study provided to Council for consideration prior to beginning the master
           management plan. The amendment was accepted by Councilmember Jarvis. Councilmember Keene seconded
           the motion.

           Council concurred that staff should investigate if there were any grants available to assist with this problem.
           There was an acknowledgment that the grant research was probably about a month’s worth of work to
           determine what qualifies, matching funds level, and any other requirements.

           The original motion was then amended to include authorization of a contract person being hired, not to
           exceed $5,000, to do the grant research in order for the recommendation to be brought back at the January
           23 work session.

           ---------------------------------------------------------------------
           Council concurred to continue the meeting to 12:30
           ---------------------------------------------------------------------

           The Mayor opened the discussion up for public comment. Joanne Powell spoke to the Council regarding the
           situation that she faced with her property. While the City did place some rocks on her property to help
           alleviate the problem, which she appreciated, she was concerned the problems they were experiencing up
           above her property can and will continue to erode the work already completed. It could also become a
           problem for those below her.

           Valerie Converse told Council that when her bank started eroding she had rip rap installed. In 1983, she paid
           $30,000 make those improvements. Her property is within the city boundaries. Right now the water is not
           on her property but within the fixed boundaries. A year from now or two, it could be that the water is on
           private property. She felt that something should be done so that the water can flow and not cause more
           damage. She also expressed her concern over having to wait until there was flooding on her property before
           she could qualify for emergency funding.

           Jill Dwyer, thanked the Council for its interest. The study by Roger Cole confirmed what they felt was
           happening all along. The erosion problem had taken over half of her property. As a property owner she
           would not be getting her land back by just stabilizing what was left. All she had originally asked for were
           some rocks and rip rap and now it has mushroomed into a $350,000 project.

           John Merz stated that he was curious as to who was doing the additional studies. He also felt that there
           should be very clearly defined requirements in the request for proposals. He questioned if the $25,000 was
           just for the first step, or for the whole plan. Staff informed Mr. Merz that the $25,000 would fund a conceptual
           plan and framework for the work on Lindo Channel. Council indicated that no one had been selected at this
           time.

           Councilmember Jarvis restated the motion.

      B. By memorandum dated 11/01/00 the Park Director provided information and additional background material
         which supplemented the report provided at the 10/17/00 City Council meeting. Specifically, the Council
         requested further details regarding costs, funding options, potential for property owner participation, and
         timing. This item was agendized to allow the City Council an opportunity to provide direction on what, if
         any, role the City will have in addressing the stream bank erosion issues.




           The motion to approve the allocation of the $25,000 for the study for the Master Management Plan for the
           Lindo Channel and the authorization of a contract person being hired, not to exceed $5,000, for contractual

11/21/00                                                                                                     Page 9 of 13

           recommendations brought back at the January 23 work session, carried by the following vote:

           AYES:         Herbert, Jarvis, Keene, Kirk, Lange, Bertagna
           NOES:         None

       D. Summary of Arts Funds.

           A summary was presented to the Council.

4.4.   DISCUSSION OF RECOMMENDATION FROM THE ARTS COMMISSION TO FUND PUBLIC ART
       TREATMENTS ON PRIVATELY OWNED FACILITIES

       By memorandum dated 11/03/00, the Art Projects Coordinator forwarded a recommendation from the Arts
       Commission to allocate $10,000 from the Chico Merged RDA Fine Arts Fund (380) to be used for funding public
       art treatments on privately owned buildings and facilities. Such funding would require the business or property
       owner to provide a minimum match of 50% and to guarantee a minimum project life of 15 years.

       The Mayor opened the hearing to the public. Greg Payne, a local artist, supported the proposal and stated that
       it would be an excellent way to support art projects within the City. No one else spoke from the audience.
       Councilmember Herbert expressed that this type of private/government partnership was exactly what he had been
       looking for to promote art in the City of Chico. Councilmember Jarvis asked who would be providing the review
       of projects for content. The Art Projects Coordinator stated that the Arts Commission did discuss the need for
       review and that in addition to a checklist, a review of the art subject and material would take place with the
       subcommittee recently approved by Council.

       A motion was made by Councilmember Herbert and seconded by Mayor Bertagna to approve the allocation of
       $10,000 to be used for funding art projects on private property.

       The motion carried by the following vote:
       AYES:          Herbert, Jarvis, Keene, Kirk, Lange, Bertagna
       NOES:          None
       ABSENT:        Guzzetti

             THE CHICO REDEVELOPMENT AGENCY RECONVENED AS THE CITY COUNCIL

4.6.   PUBLIC HEARING REGARDING THE CITY OF CHICO 2001/02 - 2005/06 FIVE-YEAR CAPITAL
       IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM - this item was deferred to the January 23, 2001 work session

       By memorandum dated 09/19/00 the Public Works Administrative Manager forwarded the City of Chico
       2001/02–2005/06 Five-Year Capital Improvement Program (CIP). This was a fiscally constrained planning
       document. In preparing this update to the CIP, comments were solicited from community and RDA Committee
       members at a meeting held 09/13/00. Comments from that meeting have been incorporated into this document.
       The CIP contains projects considered necessary within five years, beginning with fiscal year 2001-02 and provided
       an overview of the projects, expenditures, and revenues.

       The detail pages for the projects contained various information including the project and project description,
       category, funding source, any prior expenditures, the year in which funding is anticipated to be available, and
       when appropriate, a map depicting the location of the project. Capital projects funded in the 2000-01 budget were
       not included in the CIP unless future funding was projected. The Director of Public Works recommended the
       adoption of the City of Chico 2001/02-2005/06 Five-Year Capital Improvement Program.




11/21/00                                                                                                 Page 10 of 13
4.7.   CONSIDERATIONOF THECITYOF CHICO2000 UPDATEOF DEVELOPMENT IMPACT FEES ANALYSIS
       AND RECOMMENDATIONS (NEXUS STUDY) AND PUBLIC HEARING ON REVISIONS TO CERTAIN
       DEVELOPMENT IMPACT FEES - this item was deferred to the January 23, 2001 work session

       By memorandum dated 10/20/00 the Public Works Administrative Manager presented the 2000 Update of
       Development Impact Fees Analysis and Recommendations (Nexus Study) for the City Council’s consideration.


       To comply with the Government Code, the Nexus Study updated the required nexus findings for development
       impact fees that provided funds for streets, water pollution control plant facilities, trunkline facilities, bicycle
       facilities, parks, street maintenance equipment, and administrative, police and fire buildings. As an attachment
       to the memorandum, the City Council was provided with a Summary of 2000 Update of Development Impact Fees
       Analysis and Recommendations which explains the changes contained within the Nexus Study update, and the
       resulting fee changes. At its meeting of 09/05/00, the City Council accepted the recommendations of the Finance
       Committee from its meeting of 08/07/00 regarding the 2000 Update of Development Impact Fee Analysis (Nexus
       Study), and those recommendations have been incorporated into the Nexus Study that were to be considered.

       A fee schedule resolution was provided to the City Council in the event it wished to approve the 2000 Update
       of Development Impact Fees Analysis and Recommendations and adopt the associated fee increases. Any fees
       modified by the resolution would become effective on the 61st day following adoption.

4.8.   AUTHORIZATION FOR CITY STAFF TO PROCEED WITH THE PREPARATION OF A RESOLUTION
       AUTHORIZING THE ACQUISITION OF PROPERTY AT 1500 HUMBOLDT ROAD

       By memorandum dated 11/09/00, the City Manager reported that the City Council had previously authorized the
       City Manager to negotiate for the acquisition of property at 1500 Humboldt Road for the expansion of the Police
       Facility (11047). In preliminary negotiations, Hignell and Hignell expressed concerns with its ability to apply the
       full proceeds of the sale to construction of a new building. This could be accomplished by authorizing acquisition
       of the property through the City’s eminent domain powers. The City Manager recommended that the City Council
       authorize staff to proceed with the preparation of a resolution of public interest and necessity to acquire the
       property by eminent domain for future consideration by the City Council.

       A motion was made by Councilmember Kirk and seconded by Councilmember Herbert to authorize staff to
       proceed.
       The motion carried by the following vote:
       AYES:          Herbert, Jarvis, Keene, Kirk, Lange, Bertagna
       NOES:          None
       ABSENT:        Guzzetti

       member of the CSU Building Bridges Organizing Committee, requested $25,000 to cover costs associated with
       shipping, outreach and promotional activities for The Nazi Olympics: Berlin 1936, a traveling exhibit from the US
       Holocaust Museum in Washington D.C., which would be displayed in Chico at the University for the months of
       February and March, 2001.

       The exhibit, which has never before been displayed in a rural area or a non-museum venue, would be free, open
       to the public six days a week, and is expected to attract in excess of 30,000 visitors. The organizing committee has
       $35,000 in funding pledges from other sources, and the CSU, Chico Research Foundation has agreed to act as the
       non-profit fiscal receiver if funding was allocated.

       A motion was made by Councilmember Herbert and seconded by Councilmember Keene to approve the funding
       request of $25,000 for the CSU Building Bridges project.

4.10. CONSIDERATION OF POLICY FOR DISPOSITION OF SURPLUS ASSESSMENT DISTRICT
      CONSTRUCTION, REDEMPTION, AND RESERVE FUNDS

      A. Surplus Construction Funds - By memorandum dated 11/03/00, the Director of Public Works submitted a list
         of potential projects which could be funded from each assessment district fund in which there are
         unexpended construction funds. Following discussion, the City Council may wish to modify the list and
         adopt a motion of intent to approve the conceptual use of construction funds and the project list. The
         projects included on the list would then be included in a supplemental appropriation to be considered at the
         City Council January work session. Councilmember Kirk requested that the irrigation system modifications
         be included in the Forest Avenue Assessment District project, if needed. Council concurred.

      B. Surplus Redemption and Reserve Funds - By memorandum dated 11/13/00, the Finance Director provided
         background information, the current status of assessment districts with surplus redemption and/or reserve
         funds, and potential alternatives for disposition of the surplus funds.

4.11. DISCUSSION RELATED TO CHANGES IN ANNEXATION LAW

      By memorandum dated 11/6/00, the Community Development Assistant forwarded a report summarizing recent
      amendments in State laws governing the processing of annexation and the City’s role in the process. Two of the
      more significant changes require City participation in funding LAFCo operations and elimination of the City’s
      hearing to receive protests to annexation.

4.12. DISCUSSION REGARDING SIDEWALK REPAIRS

      By memorandum dated 11/07/00, a copy of which was provided with this agenda item, the Director of Public
      Works outlined community needs related to sidewalk repair, cost estimates to address those needs, a proposed
      policy requiring property owners to be responsible for repair of damaged sidewalks in the public right of way on
      their property, and indicated he would submit two capital project requests in 2001-02 for sidewalk repair; one for
      locations within the Chico Merged Redevelopment Project Area and one for other locations throughout the City.
      The City Manager previously advised the City Council (by memorandum dated 07/31/00, a copy of which was
      provided with this agenda item) that at the Mayor’s request the Director of Public Works had developed a cost
      estimate to repair sidewalks throughout the older sections of the City.

4.13. INITIAL REVIEW AND DISCUSSION OF FEASIBILITY STUDY FOR REDEVELOPMENT OF MUNICIPAL
      PARKING LOT NO. 5 (20566)

      By memorandum dated 11/07/00, the Community Development Assistant forwarded a report summarizing the
      Municipal Parking Lot No. 5 Redevelopment Feasibility Study (provided to the City Council the week of 11/06/00).

      The feasibility study examined the potential for redeveloping the City parking lot between Big Chico Creek and
      East First Street with a mixed use project, and identified both benefits and constraints to such a project. Three
      alternative development designs, including a combination of residential, office and commercial uses, were
      presented. Finally, the study identified replacement of parking and possible soil contamination as issues to be
      addressed for the project to move forward. Community Development Department staff recommended Council
      accept the study and direct staff to examine solutions to parking issues and identify potential private parties
      willing to undertake a project similar to one presented in the study. Council referred the parking study and
      analysis to the Internal Affairs Committee.

4.14. DISCUSSION OF DOWNTOWN SIDEWALK CLEANUP (20655)

      By memorandum dated 11/14/00 the Director of Public Works provided a report on the pressure washing of
      sidewalks in the downtown core area and recommendations for removing chewing gum spots which were not
      removed by the pressure washing. The Director of Public Works advised he would look at Court referrals and
      come back to Council with further recommendations.

11/21/00                                                                                                 Page 12 of 13
